Pointe-Lebel

It is probably due to its long sandy beach that the Montagnais named this North Shore village “Neshtât Kâmiluâs” (beautiful sandy spit).

  • Curbing erosion

    Riprap.

    Along the St. Lawrence, waves and tides have pushed the shores back year after year.

    This phenomenon is called erosion. While it is inevitable, there are a number of ways to slow it down.

    Using riprap involves piling rocks and boulders in front of the area being eroded. They must be placed in a certain manner depending on the slope of the terrain, current speed and height of waves and tides.
