Update on Hydro Ottawa Work in Beaverbrook 

Hydro Ottawa continues work on the cable and transformer replacements for Phase 1 of the Beaverbrook Renewal Project. I’m happy to see that they’re making steady progress and now Phase 2 is underway. 

The affected streets as a part of Phase 2 are Alfred Casson Way (between Jackson Court and Varley Drive), Gagnon Court, Binning Court, Holgate Court, Colville Court, and Lismer Crescent. 

As a result of this work, some residents and businesses will experience planned outages. Those that are directly impacted are to be notified a minimum of 72 hours in advance of the outage taking place by phone, text and/or email. Should these outages be anticipated to extend beyond 4 hours, residents will receive a written notification from Hydro Ottawa delivered to their door. 

This work is necessary due to the existing hydro equipment reaching the end of its life. The extent of the work on each road listed is dependent on the locations that require cable replacement (underground work). In the instances that underground work is required, there will be road cuts to allow access to the subterranean cables. Temporary signage will be installed for the duration of this project to ensure the safety of residents and Hydro Ottawa staff. 

Hydro Ottawa’s goal in replacing this equipment is to ensure the safety and reliability of the infrastructure and their system, preventing potentially longer future power outages in the area.
