Blackburn Cable Renewal Project May - October 2021

The Blackburn Cable Renewal Project is being completed as an essential requirement to replace the overhead and underground equipment to maintain the electricity capacity required to provide power to the Innes ward.


What will this project include 
  • New duct, manhole and pole replacements along impacted area

  • Removal and replacement of 22 transformers located on impacted streets

Why we are moving forward with this project

Hydro Ottawa equipment located in this area is reaching end of life.  As a result, it is essential to replace this equipment to ensure the overall reliability of the electricity distribution system in the area moving forward.
