Nathalie Lasselin – Reflections on being submerged in the St Lawrence for 24 hours

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Nathalie Lasselin completed her latest project of diving from one end of Montreal Island to the other, last week. Nathalie was conducting a scientific dive of 44 miles in the depths of the St. Lawrence River on Montreal Island.

She wanted to get to know the river in a urban environment, but her journey got off to a rocky start, due to water conditions, and it took more than 24 hours. Along the way, Nathalie documented the river and the water.  Water and sediment samples were collected and will be analyzed.  Six scientists will perform precise analyzes, the results of which will be published in the winter of 2018-2019.  Nathalie’s dive was completely committed towards the environment and the source of Montreal’s drinking water.

Sea to Sky

Together we can make our environment a healthier and more harmonious living environment for the good of all.
