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.

Over the following weeks, Hydro Ottawa will be completing the pole replacement project in the Marlowe Crescent area. This work is necessary to ensure reliability of electricity supply in the area.

The construction of the new pole line is completed and we have now moved forward with the final phase of the project. Overall, the completion of the project will include:

•           Transfer overhead electrical infrastructures to the new pole line;

•           Remove the old existing pole line; and

•           Complete reinstatement work and bring the project to completion.

In order to safely complete this project, planned power interruptions will be required.
