Youville Drive and St. Joseph Blvd. watermain works
Contract no. ISD13-3000
The City of Ottawa would again like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing patience during the construction of the Orléans Watermain Link (OWL) and associated water infrastructure in your area. Some remaining work is required to complete the final connection of new watermains serving Ottawa East. This connection work will be done at the intersection of Youville Drive and St. Joseph Blvd., and is being done in the fall during lower water demand period.
Who: The Contractor, Greenbelt, and their sub-contractor are installing the Orleans Watermain Link (OWL) on Youville Drive at the St. Joseph Blvd. intersection.
Why: This work is necessary to connect the new OWL watermain to existing water infrastructure and provide redundancy in the water system. This helps to ensure adequate clean water supply to east Ottawa.
What: Current work involves digging at the intersection of Youville Drive and St. Joseph Blvd. to install remaining watermain pipes to connect the new water pipe to existing infrastructure. This construction will require lane reductions and detours.

When: Lane reductions and turning movement restrictions began in early October and will continue until December 2016.
