Recent Seismic Event

On June 23rd a significant seismic event occurred across Southern Ontario. It was centred some 60 km north of Ottawa near Echo Lake Quebec.

There is some concern with regard to older structures resting on rocker bearings (generally built prior to 1970). We encourage immediate inspection of these structures to confirm that no damage has occurred. In most cases the initial reconnaissance can be conducted by municipal staff. In cases where damage has occurred or is suspect, a more in depth investigation should be carried out by senior engineering staff or outside consultants.

The notice circulated by the Ministry of Transportation regarding this matter can be accessed via the link below.
