Blasting Notice- Bodnar Subdivision

Please be advised that the ongoing construction for the Bodnar Lands Development
Project will require the use of explosives/blasting.

Blasting will be commencing the week of January 11th, 2021 and will continue until the week of June 14th, 2021. Blasting will be conducted Monday through Friday between
7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. with up to six (6) blasts occurring per crew per day.

All blast vibration levels are carefully monitored to ensure compliance with applicable
guidelines and regulations and to alleviate the possibility of damage to nearby
structures.

Prior to each blast, the blast site will be cleared of all persons and secured. This will be
followed by a series of warning whistles that will be sounded to alert all persons in the
vicinity:

  • Five short whistles – One minute to blast
  • Three short whistles – Blast is imminent
  • One long whistle – Blast is all clear

We wish to express our sincere appreciation in advance for your cooperation and
understanding during this construction period. Should you have any questions related
to the upcoming excavation operations, please feel free to contact Jeff Corace, M-Roc
Ltd. Drilling and Blasting at 613-838-4666 or Explotech Engineering at 613-723-2494.
