Pole Replacement at Sweetnam Drive

Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking a few electrical service improvements in Stittsville over the next couple of months. The project involves replacing aging hydro poles on Sweetnam Drive (between Hazeldean Road and Harry Douglas Drive). This project will improve the reliability of the electrical distribution system in the Stittsville area.

Work is scheduled to commence at the end of April and continue until the end of May. Residents will notice an increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities. In order to minimize noise concerns, Hydro Ottawa will ensure that work is completed weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Traffic control will be implemented when required to ensure that roads and driveways remain accessible and safe to residents. Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

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. Residents will also receive advance notification prior to any planned power interruption affecting their premises.

My office and Hydro Ottawa are 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 myself at shad.qadri@ottawa.ca or Mike Denomme, System Designer, who has been overseeing this project at mikedenomme@hydroottawa.com.
