Engineers can’t always prepare for ground liquefying due to Leda clay. Recent studies show east Ottawa would feel an earthquake worse than much of the nation’s capital. Underground mapping conducted by area seismologists show most of Orleans sits on top of deposits of unstable Leda clay, which can magnify shaking felt during an earthquake.
An earthquake hazard map of Ottawa developed by scientists at the Geological Survey of Canada and Carleton University shows which parts of the city are more at risk from seismic shaking. “Those areas with thick pockets of Leda clay under them, including parts of Carp and Orléans, are likely to experience more shaking, and as a result, more damage in a major quake.
