Residential Protective Plumbing
A reminder to residents in Kanata South that the opportunity to get 100% coverage for the Residential Protective Plumbing Program (RPPP) for those who qualify is running out and I want to encourage all residents to consider this important protective measure for their properties.
The City of Ottawa’s RPPP provides consultation and grant assistance services to property owners who have experienced a backup of water or sewage in their basement caused by the overloading or blockage of city sewers, or those who live in an area that is at risk.
The Residential Protective Plumbing Grant is a cash incentive offered by the City of Ottawa to encourage residents who experienced basement backups caused by blockages or surcharging of city sewers to install protective plumbing devices.
The program can assist you to determine what is needed to prevent a future backup in your home if you:
- had a backup caused by surcharging of the city sewer system, or
- live in a location that is at risk of backups caused by surcharging of city sewers.
The protective plumbing evaluation is free and there is no cost to apply to the program. You may also be eligible for a grant to offset the cost of installing protective plumbing in your home.
We all know that this heat and lack of rain has been great for barbeque season but unfortunately the same cannot be said for our forests. Ottawa firefighters have spent over a week in the NCC woods off of Richmond road keeping a fire from endangering our community. I was honoured last week to visit the site and shake hands with many of those men and women. In partnership with Willy’s Pizza, I brought the group lunch to show my appreciation for all of their hard work. I would again like to thank everyone involved for protecting our community.
