Please be advised that EWC has a noise exemption for geotechnical investigations (borehole drilling) along Richmond Rd between the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway and New Orchard as well as in the proximity of Bayshore Shopping Centre
Exemptions are for 30 days beginning July 25, 2019. In order to minimize impacts on pedestrians and traffic from lane closures, night work is the recommended mitigation.
EWC is proposing to use truck mounted drill rigs and tools like hammers and wrenches. Noise from geotechnical investigations should not affect residential areas any more than normal highway traffic. The closest work location is approximatively 30m away from residential areas and EWC will monitor noise throughout the investigations. Minimal light impact is expected. Lights will be mounted on equipment and are typically directed at the ground surface where the invesitgation is located. Beacon lights on trucks will be used for worker safety.
Two maps below have been provided to us by EWC which show the locations of boreholes.
