Frequently asked questions

Do I need to empty my septic tank?

Refrain from using the treatment system while the ground is still flooded or saturated with water. Empty the septic tank as soon as possible after flooding, once the ground is no longer saturated with water. Empty the pumping station too, if you have one.

Can I receive financial assistance to repair the damage to my home?

First, contact your insurer and request a formal response regarding your insurability for the disaster. Consult the GUIDE – AIDE FINANCIÈRE (available in French only) for additional information on financial aid available.

How much time should I wait before disinfecting my private well?

Wait a minimum of 10 days after the flood waters have receded before disinfecting your well and having your water analyzed.

Can I eat the food that was in my freezer?

Perishable food that has thawed completely must be thrown out if it has been exposed to temperatures above 4OC. Perishable food includes meat, poultry, fish and seafood, dairy products, eggs and ready-made foods that contain eggs, whether raw or cooked.

Can I use the sand to raise my lot?

It is forbidden to use sand for work intended to raise the level of properties in the floodplain.
