Hydro Pole Replacement Public Information Session, September 30

You are here

Hydro pole replacement project is coming next year to Claire, Devonshire, and Westhaven. The following notice is being sent to residents in the area:


Notice of Community Meeting – Pole Replacement



Dear Westboro resident,


Beginning in 2020, Hydro Ottawa will undertake a pole replacement project in your neighbourhood. This work is necessary in order to ensure reliability of electricity supply.


Hydro Ottawa will be holding an information session on Monday, September 30, 2019 to provide you with detailed information about this project and explain how this may impact you.


Date:                Monday, September 30, 2019

Time:               7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Location:         Hilson Avenue Public School, Gymnasium

                         407 Hilson Avenue


While this project is still months away, we wanted to provide you and your neighbours with advance notice as some effort may be required on your part to allow our crews access to the critical infrastructure located within our easements and on the City of Ottawa’s Road Right-of-Way. 


More specifically, any smaller structures (such as sheds, decks, and walkways, as well as landscaping) located around the poles may require removal in advance in order to allow safe access for our crews. Hydro Ottawa will work with our customers to keep removals to a minimum. In most cases, Hydro Ottawa will be able to complete the work as planned so as to minimize any damage to customer property. An overall map showing the proposed work area will be available at the information session.


Hydro Ottawa is committed to delivering safe, reliable, electricity service and keeping you informed of upgrades taking place in your community.
