Rivière des Roches (Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures)

The Rivière des Roches is a tributary of the northwest shore of the Saint Lawrence river, flowing in the municipality of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, in the Portneuf Regional County Municipality, in the administrative region of Capitale-Nationale, in the province of Quebec, in Canada. The Roches river valley is served by the route 138, chemin du Roy, chemin du 3e rang and chemin du Cabouron, notably for the needs of agriculture and of forestry, are the two main economic activities in this area; the surface of the Rivière des Roches is frozen from the beginning of December to the end of March. The water level of the river varies with the precipitation; the Roches river has its source in a forest area in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures at the limit of Neuville, north of the village of Saint-Nicolas. This source is located 0.2 kilometres north of the Canadian National railway, 8.0 kilometres west of the village center of Saint-Augustin-de- Desmaures, 1.3 kilometres northwest of autoroute 400, 4.6 kilometres northwest of the Saint Lawrence river, 5.9 kilometres northwest of its mouth.

From its source, the Roches river flows over a distance of 9.6 kilometres, with a drop in level of 13 metres, according to the following segments: 3.5 kilometres towards the east by forming a progressive curve towards the south, in forest area and by crossing the railway of Canadian National entering agricultural area until the highway 40. The confluence of the Roches river and the Saint-Laurent river flows into the Saint-Laurent downstream of the Dombourg islets; this confluence is located 16.1 kilometres southwest of the Pierre Laporte Bridge, 3.4 kilometres southwest of the center of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures. The toponym "Rivière des Roches" originates from the habit of residents of the area to designate it because of its rocky bed, just like sixty other similar entities across Quebec, it has been known under the names Ruisseau Dorval and Rivière des Rouches. It is from this that the Desroches family, whose ancestor was called Tinon Tinon Des Roches, took its nickname; the toponym "Rivière des Roches" was formalized on December 5, 1968 at the Commission de toponymie du Québec.
