Hazeldean Pumping Station Improvements




Construction work for the relocation of the Hazeldean Pump Station hydro service is scheduled to begin the week of October 8, 2012. This work consists of:

– Construction of a new underground hydro service to the Hazeldean Pump Station that will run parallel to the Trans Canada Trail before crossing the trail leading towards the pump station property. Construction activities include the following:

Installation of a new below ground concrete encased duct housing new power cables for the pump station;


Reinstatement of the Trans Canada Trail and adjacent ditches following construction.


The project limits are as follows:

– Approximately 100m south of the Pump Station property along the Trans Canada Trail

– Hazeldean Pump Station property

– Refer to the attached site map


The week of October 8, 2012, Hydro Ottawa’s crews are scheduled to begin work on the Trans Canada Trail. Please be advised that construction scheduling is subject to changes due to weather conditions, unforeseen conditions, and the availability of resources.

This work is being completed as part of the overall Hazeldean Pump Station improvement project. A separate notice will be distributed prior to commencement of the Hazeldean Pumping Station Improvements project, planned for late fall 2012.


Access to the Trans Canada Trail


The trail will remain open to the general public during construction of the new site electrical service. Signage and fencing will be used during construction to ensure the trail can be used safely and to direct the public around construction activities. Short term blockages may occur to facilitate the movement of equipment and materials. The Contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays and detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
