I am concerned about blasting on the KNL lands. What can I do?
The city itself does not have a blasting by-law, and there is no permit required from the city for the blasting to take place. This is regulated at Provincial level. However, blasting can only occur at times consistent with the noise by-law. If there is blasting outside of this time-frame, please contact Ottawa by-law by calling 3-1-1.
Developers that undertake blasting in the city are subject to city specifications. The specifications mainly speak to notification requirements, pre-blast survey requirements, and maximum vibration requirements. The Development Supervisor for this project is Jordan Pennell and can be reached at (613) 580-2424 ext 29030 or by email at Jordan.Pennell@ottawa.ca.
Should there be a report of damage in your home, the city contacts the blasting consultant who will schedule an inspection of your house and confirm vibration monitoring information to make sure blasting is within the specified limits.
If you have safety concerns, please reach out to the Ontario Ministry of Labour (1-877-202-0008).
