The City of Ottawa has initiated the design for upgrades to the Briar Ridge Pump Station that was originally built in 2002 and is located at 960 Klondike Road in North Kanata (Ward 4). It was designed to serve the Briar Ridge subdivision and surrounding drainage area of approximately 128 hectares.
Improvements are required for increased station capacity and to improve operation and reliability to meet current standards. With these upgrades the pump station is expected to increase its capacity to service the Kanata North Urban Expansion Area. The proposed upgrades include installing a new backup generator required for emergency situations, replacing existing two (2) pumps with three (3) new pumps, updating electrical and instrumentation to current standard requirements and other miscellaneous improvements.
Anticipated Project Timing:
Design assignment completion: fall 2021
Construction commencement: spring 2022
Construction substantial completion: winter 2022/2023
Construction completion: spring 2023
Approved funding to date is $500,000.
