“Moderate” Low Water Condition in Rideau River Watershed

July 19, 2018 –  This statement is to advise that the low water status in the Rideau River watershed is now at Moderate severity.
Water conservation is recommended for everyone within the Rideau River watershed including residents on private wells inside the City of Ottawa boundary. Those who have permits for taking water from surface or groundwater sources are encouraged to reduce their actual taking as much as possible. Residents on private well systems are also urged to use water conservatively. Using rain barrels to capture any rain to water lawns and gardens. Avoid using pressure washers to clean houses, driveways, decks and fences. All these actions contribute to the conservation of our water resources. Municipalities may have invoked water restrictions so check your municipal website for applicable bylaws.

fireAll non-hydrant areas within our City, including  Pine Glen, Grenfell, Merivale Gardens and Hearts Desire, are identified within  Computer Added Dispatch (CAD) system. When an address in a non-hydrant area is entered into the CAD system the Ottawa Fire Services deploys additional apparatus, specifically designed to carry large volumes of water, to aid with fire suppression activities. These additional apparatus are commonly referred to as “Tankers”. After vigorous testing by the ULC, the Ottawa Fire Services recently re-qualified for its “Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation”. The accreditation provides an equivalent to hydrant rating for areas such as those you reference.
