At an announcement on Wednesday, city officials said they had completed work expected to put an end to flooding in Ottawa’s west-end. In both 2002 and 2009 hundreds of homes were destroyed in Kanata North, Carp and Stittsville by water and sewage as a result of severe storms.
Councillor Allan Hubley revealed a new pond located near the intersection of Castlefrank Rd. at Winchester Dr. as the final piece of a $35 million solution to the flooding.
“Now what happens, is that there are different catch basins at the top, that the water will flow down through that pipe… and it will be stored here in the pond,” Hubley said.http://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/work-complete-to-end-flooding-in-city-s-west-end-1.3184003
