Dear Councillor Brockington,

Re: Hydro Ottawa Project #92011984 – Uplands Drive between Ratan Court and Lillico Drive

I am writing to inform you of electrical service improvements Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking in your ward. The project involves the removal and replacement of switchgear equipment that has reached the end of its life. This equipment is located in three areas along Uplands Drive between Ratan Court and Lillico Drive. This work is necessary to ensure reliability of the electricity distribution system in the area.

Work on this project is scheduled to commence on September 18 and continue until December 15. Residents will notice an 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 and staff. In order to minimize noise concerns, we will ensure that work is completed weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Be assured that all residents and businesses in the affected area will receive advanced notice of the project and be provided with a point of contact. Planned power outages are not expected to occur as a result of this project. We will work diligently to reduce disruptions and our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

Hydro Ottawa is committed to delivering safe, reliable electricity service and keeping you informed of upgrades and emergency work taking place in your community.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Cheryl Wallace, System Designer, who is overseeing this project. Cheryl can be reached at 613-880-9367 or via email at CherylWallace@hydroottawa.com. You can also reach me directly at 613-321-3926 or JulieLupinacci@hydroottawa.com.
