Development and Transportation Projects
Morisset Avenue Pump Station (formerly Carlington Heights Pump Station)
- Project Type: New construction, old structure to be demolished
- Location: Top of Carlington Hill in Carlington Park
- Status: Design is complete; Construction to start late summer/early fall 2023, to last until 2025.
- Last updated: June 2023
Details: A new, larger pump station will be constructed at the top of Carlington Hill, west of the existing one, so that it can provide adequate emergency supply to the City’s various water pressure zones in the future. The current pump station will remain in operation until the new one is built. Water mains will then be re-routed to the new pump station. Once the new station is operational, the old pump station will be demolished about 6 months later, after the new pump station has been fully commissioned and is operating to the full satisfaction of the city.
In May 2017, the City of Ottawa gave an information session about this project. Another public information session was hosted April 13, 2022.
