Community warned City in 2011 about potential for damage

Multiple homes in Ottawa are still dealing with severe damage after experiencing strong vibrations and various construction processes such as sheet piling, dewatering and drilling from an adjacent condo development site. The damage includes sinking floors, gaps and cracks in the walls and in one case, a collapsed ceiling. Meeting minutes show that the Lowertown community had warned the City of Ottawa and Council in 2011, prior to construction, about potential issues that could result in damage to homes. Residents says they are seeking answers from the City and Council.
