Brittany Drive Pumping Station Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA)

Project Status: 

Revised Notice of Completion

The City of Ottawa is planning a replacement of the existing Brittany Drive water pumping station located at 565 Brittany Drive with a new facility to serve the Montreal Road Pressure Zone.  The proposed new pumping station is required to provide water system capacity and reliability to the existing users and new development in the zone. The planning process for this project followed the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and was completed in November 2005 as a Schedule B undertaking. The timing of the station replacement was connected to the former Rockcliffe CFB Redevelopment project which was delayed for several years.  The City consequently also delayed the detailed design and construction of the new Brittany Drive Pumping Station.

Since the period of time from filing the first Brittany Drive Pumping Station Class EA Notice of Completion to the proposed commencement of construction for the project exceeds 10 years, the City reviewed the project planning to ensure that the project preferred solution and associated mitigation measures are still valid. The review concluded that no changes to these recommendations are required.

If you would like to review the updated Project File or to provide written comment, please contact the City project manager at the address below within 30 calendar days from the date of this Notice.
