NRC | Construction Activity 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.
