Ottawa river outfalls rehabilitation master plan and class environmental assessment

Notice of commencement

The City of Ottawa is responsible for maintaining its storm and combined sewer outfalls to the Ottawa River to an acceptable level of service. Based on a regular inspection programme, twenty nine (29) of these outfalls have now been identified as needing rehabilitation to the physical/structural components. The City of Ottawa is commencing a Master Plan study to identify the most effective rehabilitation programme for the twenty nine (29) outfalls by assessing each option on a life cycle basis.

The Process

This study is being planned as a Master Plan project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, 2007, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. Upon completion of Phase 2 of this study, during which alternative solutions will be identified and evaluated, a Master Plan document will be prepared that will establish the outfalls rehabilitation plan.


Members of the public, agencies, and other interested persons are invited to provide comments for incorporation into the planning and design of this project, and/or to ask to be placed on the project's mailing list. There will be several opportunities to learn more during the course of the study, including public open house meetings and the City of Ottawa website.
