Clearing the Air Over the Acres Pumping Station

Acres Drive Wastewater Pumping Station, at 2 Aero Drive, will require Photo-Ionisation (PI) odour control to address ongoing odour issues identified by City operators.

The work includes the construction of additional ductwork to convey air flow from the sewer at the station to a new PI odour control unit to reduce odour in the air. 

Construction is expected to begin end of May or early June 2021 and completion is anticipated to be by March 2022. A City of Ottawa webpage for the project will be created and a Notice of Construction will be distributed to residents living on roads immediately adjacent to the pumping station prior to construction beginning.

Ongoing questions regarding this project can be directed at the city’s on-site inspector Tyler Patten (
