The final and most significant project of the Ottawa River Action Plan is getting underway. The construction of the Combined Sewer Storage Tunnel (CSST) under the downtown will ultimately improve the health of the Ottawa River by significantly reducing the number of sewage overflows into the river during heavy rainfall. Unfortunately, the tunnel project will cause disruption in the area of Stanley Park, the location for the eastern construction outlet (portal). While much of the project in and around Stanley Park will only commence in 2017 some initial work to prepare hydro access will occur this autumn. Updates will also be made available on the project website.
You are invited to join the project team to hear more about the CSST project at a public information session that will be held following the New Edinburgh Community Alliance Annual General Meeting.
When: Thursday, October 27, 2016 from 7:30pm to 9:00pm (immediately following the New Edinburgh Community Association Annual General Meeting)
Where: St. Bartholomew’s Church, 125 MacKay Street
