Title
Des eaux indésirables : Montréal et ses eaux de surface, 1796-1840
Abstract
Describes the transition to a new conception of municipal land use planning in Montreal, in which surface water, initially viewed as a unavoidable natural phenomenon, became seen as something that could and should be flushed out and drained away, even hidden (inside pipes). This transition occurred during the first decades of the nineteenth century, a time when public health concerns were compounded by issues related to the movement of people and goods.
