With milder temperatures forecast, City crews will be out clearing snow and ice in order to facilitate roadway drainage and alleviate flooding.
Residents are encouraged to help by clearing snow and ice from catch basins near their homes. Catch basins can be located by a yellow “T” bar painted on the roadway identifying a catch basin close by.

The City of Ottawa has temporarily closed its 55 approved sledding hills due to the mild weather conditions and lack of snow, which have resulted in unsafe conditions for sledding. The City of Ottawa urges the public to keep personal safety in mind and to remain off the sledding hills until further notice. The hills will reopen once we receive some new snow and only after hill conditions are deemed safe.
Notification of the re-opening of the hills will be available on the City’s website at ottawa.ca.
