Lakeview Community Meeting on Drainage Ditches December 3rd

The Crystal Beach Lakeview Community Association is following up on Lakeview residents’ concerns about the state of the drainage ditches in the community.

In May, the CBLCA conducted a survey in which 38 percent of respondents reported drainage ditch overflows onto their lawn or driveway (full results here).

As a next step, the association will host a community meeting to collect additional information and to allow Lakeview residents to share their experiences with their neighbours.

This meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019 at 7 p.m. at the Chartwell Riverpark Retirement Residence (1 Corkstown Road).

In January, there will be a community meeting with City of Ottawa officials and the local councillor. Stay tuned for details.

We look forward to seeing you on December 3rd.

  1. Just get the city to dig out the ditches like they did years ago in the spring and there is no drainage problem. Last year was a heavy year for snow fall so there were probably issues.

  2. Just get the city of dig out the ditches in the spring. Never an issue when this was being done. They might rip up the lawn a bit but no more than the snow plow

  3. Ottawa gets one more meter of precipitation each year than it did 60 years ago. Drainage at the front… and often at the back of our lots need to be improve… and maybe some of us will have to dig in the ground to put thanks with several thousand litres capacity for when the rain is too heavy. Note: A mature maple will use of to 300 gallons of water per day. More in the spring as its cells go from hibernation crystallization to live again.
