Hydro Ottawa is committed to delivering the highest levels of customer service and safety. To achieve this goal, we regularly evaluate, replace and upgrade equipment in your area – and across the region’s electrical distribution system.
Starting January 2021, Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking a project to replace aging hydro poles in your neighbourhood. Pole replacement involves excavating and replacing existing poles located on your street and/or in your backyard. Tree trimming will also be required.
You may notice increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities and construction vehicles. Traffic control will be implemented when required to ensure that roads and driveways remain safe and accessible to residents and staff.
Planned power interruptions are expected to occur as a result of this work, and all affected residents and businesses will be notified of any interruptions in advance. Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
Affected streets: Merivale Road (between Central Park Drive and Larose Avenue) and Mayview Avenue (between Merivale Road and Medford Street)
Update July 2021 - This project has been extended and is esitmated to be completed by end of September 2021.
