Donald Street Watermain Repair - Completion Phase to begin in early May

What: The watermain repair work completed in December 2023 involved excavation in the eastbound lane and south boulevard of Donald Street, replacement of a section of watermain, and reinstatement of the road and boulevard. The project is now in the ‘Completion’ phase, during which reinstatement of final paving, concrete curbs, and landscaping will be completed. Two replacement trees will be planted.
Why: The City has a condition assessment program which undertakes to monitor the most critical watermain pipes within the City. Results indicated that a section of the watermain on Donald Street required replacement. The reinstatement work is required following the repair of the watermain.
When: The contractor is recommencing construction in May 2024 to complete reinstatement of final paving, concrete curbs, and landscaping. The work is expected to be complete in spring 2024.
Where: Construction will be on Donald Street from North River Road to 50 metres west of Marguerite Avenue.
Who: The City of Ottawa retained the contractor, R.W. Tomlinson Limited, to complete the work.

Residents in the surrounding neighbourhood will receive a construction notice in advance of the project. For more information about the project, please visit
