NRC | Construction Activity 2017

March 30, 2017

The National Research Council NRC has a major construction project underway to separate and replace old sewer lines at the north end of its Montreal Road campus, which involves blasting to create a wider trench to contain the new pipes.

Some nearby residents have heard noise, felt vibrations, and/or filed complaints with the NRC. The NRC indicates that vibrations from the blasting are within acceptable limits and conform to the City of Ottawa Special Provision (SP) F-1201.  The contractor (Loiselle) has been informed of resident concerns and will mitigate impacts to the extent possible.

We are told that blasting will continue until the end of May.  If you experience any problems relating to this project, contact the NRC or the RHPOA.
