Starting on September 27, 2021, Hydro Ottawa will be completing a project to replace poles and aging equipment that may require access to residential backyards throughout the duration of the project. This project is estimated to be completed by November 5, 2021 and will impact residents located on Hutton Avenue, Russell Road and Haig Drive. Please note that Hydro Ottawa continues to follow the provincial directives surrounding COVID-19 and would like to confirm that this work has been deemed essential to providing a safe and reliable supply of power to our customers.
In the current environment, we recognize that this is a sensitive time and understand that construction and power outages can be very disruptive. Our goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so we can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future. Please be assured that scheduling of this power outage has been reviewed and will move forward with our customers’ best interest in mind.
Residents may notice increased construction presence throughout the day, including construction vehicles. Traffic control and lane reductions will be implemented throughout the day to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe and accessible to residents and staff. Tree trimming will be required.
Planned power outages may occur during the project. Customers impacted by power outages will be notified by phone, text, and/or email. Customers will also receive a written notice delivered to their door where applicable. Further, notifications will be provided if the power outages are to extend beyond the original duration time. In case of adverse weather, the outages may be rescheduled.
Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any
