Sewer construction to block off parts of Confederation Park, surrounding streets

By Christian Paas-Lang, Ottawa Citizen, January 5, 2018

The construction of new sewage infrastructure in Confederation Park will cause temporary closures of adjacent traffic lanes and a portion of the park, starting in March.

Work to construct the Rideau Canal Interceptor Diversion Chamber is scheduled to continue until January 2019. It’s part of a larger city project, called the Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel, which seeks to reduce sewage overflows into the Ottawa River during heavy rainfall. The diversion chamber being built in Confederation Park will help push this project forward by diverting the flow of the current Rideau Canal Interceptor into the CSST system.
