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 in February 2020, Hydro Ottawa will be conducting a pole replacement project in the Rideau-Garden neighbourhood to improve the reliability of the electrical service in the area. Pole replacement involves excavating and replacing existing poles located on your street.
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 accessible and safe to residents. Tree trimming may also be required.
Planned power interruptions are expected to occur as a result of this project, and all affected residents and businesses will be notified of these interruptions in advance. Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
Affected street: Marlowe Crescent (between Clegg Street and Elliott Avenue)
Project start date: February 2020
Project completion date: May 2020
