My office in collaboration with the City of Ottawa Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department invite you to a Public Information Session being held on Tuesday, August 21st from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Hall A at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. This meeting will give residents the opportunity to view information with respect to the Stittsville Diversion Trunk Sewer project that is planned to begin fall 2018, subject to approvals, with completion in Spring 2020. Design drawings will be on display for your viewing. Staff will also be on hand to provide information and receive comments.

The West Urban Community- Wastewater Collection System Master Servicing Plan Study completed in July 2012 recommended construction of the “Stittsville/Fernbank Diversion Trunk Sewer” to send wastewater flows to the Kanata West Pumping Station (KWPS) and reduce flows to the existing Hazeldean Pumping Station (HPS), eliminating the need for further HPS expansion for this growing development area.

 The 900mm diameter Stittsville Diversion Trunk Sewer (SDTS) will divert wastewater from the existing Stittsville trunk sewer on Abbott Street and will convey the flow to the Kanata West Pumping Station (KWPS).

The design is nearing completion. Construction of the SDTS is expected to start in the fall of 2018 and will be substantially complete late in 2019, with surface restoration complete in the spring of 2020.

From the existing Roundabout on Abbott Street, the proposed alignment extends north through the Fernbank Community lands along the North-South Arterial/Transitway corridor (future Robert Grant Avenue).  Crossing under Hazeldean Road and Poole Creek, the diversion sewer will turn east on Maple Grove Road and tie into an existing sewer stub for KWPS.

Drainage area plans for the HPS and KWPS will be on display for information purposes.

City staff and the project consultant will be on hand to discuss the project, construction impacts and to respond to questions.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and or would like additional information, you can direct your comments to the City of Ottawa Senior Project Manager Craig Anderson  or 613-580-2424, x 20126
