I've tried sharing a link to a Google map location, but the new maps is a
bit weird. So the best I can do is provide addresses for you folks:
Marina: 1777 Avenue Bourgogne, Chambly, QC J3L 1Y8, Canada
Fort Chambly: 1937 Avenue Bourgogne, Chambly, QC J3L, Canada (just a short
bit down the road from the Marina)
Water purification works: Follow the left path in the park located
near 1756 Avenue de Gentilly, Chambly, QC J3L 6V9, Canada. The water pans
are just behind that.
