Q&A

Q: What are the periodic rumbling sounds?

A: NRC has a major construction project underway – to separate and replace old sewer lines at the north end of the property – requiring contractors to blast to create a wider trench to contain the new pipes. We have been told that the blasting will continue until the end of May.

Nearby neighbours have wondered or filed complaints about the vibration felt at home. The feedback received from NRC is that vibration limits of the blasting are conforming to the City of Ottawa Special Provision (SP) F-1201, and that the contractor (Loiselle) has been informed of resident concerns and will mitigate impacts to the extent possible.
