New Edinburgh Group To Protest Sewage Tunnel


This is release from a New Edinburgh community group against the Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel:

Residents of New Edinburgh will be presenting a petition to City Hall to demonstrate the level of dismay and anger at the lack of appropriate consultation and consideration of a viable option to Stanley Park as the main extraction site for the East-West CSST (Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel) project.
Date: Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Time: 11:30 am
Location: Ottawa City Hall
The more we learn about how New Edinburgh has been deliberately excluded from information sessions, the more it becomes clear that the City always intended to put the major load on our neighbourhood.
1. In the addendum to environmental study report-Ottawa combined sewage storage April 2, 2014 a one and a half page circulation list EXCLUDES NECA. New Edinburgh was not informed!!!!
2. In the CSST Environmental Study Report under Table 5-2 Potential Impacts and Mitigation Measures: “…limiting disruptions to nearby communities as best as possible special consideration to those communities that have previously had intensive construction (i.e. Stanley Park and Somerset neighbourhoods.”

  1. A failure to consult? Who would have thought? Round up the usual suspects (with apologies to Captain Renaud of the Casablanca Prefecture).

  2. Why would the city think for even an instant that not telling the New Edinburgh crew would keep them from finding out? This has been for decades one of the best-informed and most-organized communities in the city. The Vanier Parkway was stopped by them from cutting through Stanley Park – they’re not likely to abandon the park now for a sewer tunnel.

    1. NUMBY is brilliant!
      One of the big concerns is five to 10 dump trucks per hour from 7 am to 10 pm in a residential neighbourhood. Another is the secrecy – there were consultations done but none of them were in New Edinburgh. There is a legitimate question about what else they haven’t found out about the project.

      1. Voter, it has been my observation that one of the most difficult tasks in life is knowing what you don’t know. How deep is that pit (pun intended)?

  3. Clever is what I was aiming for Ken. I’m not in any position to judge the issue but if it were happening in my neighbourhood I’d probably share their concerns, especially given the city’s usual lack of consultation.
