With this work there is always a potential that it could affect homeowners. Please take a look at the following tips to protect your home and property from any potential damage:

  • Ensure footing drains direct water to the storm sewer or sump pump, away from the foundation. Footing drains should not be connected to the sanitary sewer system.
  • Ensure water run-off on the property is flowing to the ground surface or storm drainage system, not the sanitary system.
  • Install protective plumbing devices (such as backwater valves) that protect against sewer backups, and inspect them regularly.
  • Ensure service pipes between the municipal sewer main and the house are in good operating condition.
  • In rare instances, the pressure from sewer cleaning operations can create a vacuum and blowback water through home fixtures, such as toilets. During this period, it is important to keep the toilet lids down at all times. If your house experiences a blowback, please contact the City immediately at 3-1-1 or by e-mail at 311@ottawa.ca.

Door-to Door Sales Scams

The City of Ottawa is warning residents to be aware of door-to-door salespeople posing as water-quality technicians, making false claims about the quality of City drinking water.

These individuals have been known to approach residents to sell water filtration or treatment systems and provide incorrect information pertaining to water quality.

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment has rated Ottawa’s drinking water as being among the safest in the world.  In addition, the City has an extensive drinking water quality analysis program.

Residents are reminded that:

  • City employees do not contact residents to sell products or services
  • Except for emergency situations, home access is scheduled in advance
  • City employees carry identification at all times – you have the right to ask for ID
  • City employees always travel in City of Ottawa logo-identified marked vehicles
  • Should you have concerns or wish to report suspicious visits or calls, please contact 3-1-1
