Hesse Crescent Stormwater Management Work Completed



I am happy to inform residents that the stormwater management work in the area of land north of Hesse Crescent in Stittsville has been completed.

The work, which began earlier in the month, consisted of the clearing of brush and some limited small tree removal, removal of accumulated sediment and earth grading, and reinstatement of the low flow drainage channel extending from the storm sewer outlet from Hesse Crescent to the outlet structure on the north side of the block

The work was required to ensure that: i) flow from normal rain events is conveyed through the city block without undue erosion; and ii) adequate space is provided to accommodate storage of storm water volume from extreme rainfall events, in order to protect residence from flooding and downstream lands from erosion.

I hope that all residents will be pleased with the new look and functionality of the facility. Of course, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.
