ROUND 2: Residents in Fairwinds get set for another round of blasting

Controlled Blasting signage

UPDATE NOVEMBER 11: Melissa Côté from Tartan Homes tells that the blasting will begin sometime between December 2-8, and last approximately 50 working days, or two-and-a-half months.

Some residents living on the western side of Fairwinds have received letters about upcoming blasting in the Poole Creek Village area.

The blasting is part of housing construction by Tartan and Tamarack for the Poole Creek Village subdivision.  We’ve asked both companies for information about when (and how long) the blasting will occur and will update this post when we hear back.

The letters are about pre-blasting surveys being conducted by an engineering firm.  The surveys establish a baseline so that if residents believe their homes have been damaged by blasting work, they’ll have a reference point to help prove their claim.

There was a whole lot of shaking going on earlier this year from June to September. Nearby residents described the blasting as like an earthquake, shaking foundations and rattling dishes. You can read more here…

Here’s a copy of the letters received this week by residents.

  1. Well I called the number on the letter. It seems anyone that works for a living is out of luck for these inspections.

    They only do it between 8am and 4pm weekdays. They say they don’t do it outside of this hours because it’s dark. I suggested weekends then, but they said no.

    They said that it is up to me to schedule some time off – basically when it is convenient for them.
