The Region of Peel Public Works department regularly maintains and repairs the water system to make sure you have a consistent supply of quality drinking water. Sometimes we must turn off your water supply while we do this work.

Your water will be turned off on Wednesday, March 13th, from approximately 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. If we need to reschedule this work due to weather or other circumstances, we will let you know the new date and time.

If this interruption may affect an alarm or maintenance company, it is your responsibility to notify them.  During the time that the water supply is interrupted, the building’s sprinkler protection system will not function.  A fire watch should be performed as necessary during time period.

After the water interruption:

When we turn the water back on, air in the pipes may make the water cloudy and your plumbing may vibrate or make noise.  We recommend removing the air by slowly turning on your taps from the lowest to the highest faucet in the building (that is, starting in the basement/first floor and finishing on the top floor). Flush the toilets as well. You will likely need to run the water for 10 to 30 seconds.  Run the water until it is clear, and any vibration or noise has stopped.

Important note:  After the water is turned back on, we recommend checking your water meter (usually located in the basement).  If it is leaking, call Water Meter Installations Dispatch at:

  • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 3226 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday to Friday)
  • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 4409 (After hours or Statutory Holidays)

Peel Region to invest additional $130 million to expand capacity at G.E. Booth Water Resource Recovery Facility

By Announcement, Planning & Development, Resources

Increased capacity will accommodate more housing in support of Bill 23

Peel Region council approved an additional investment of $130 million to increase wastewater capacity by 40 million litres per day (MLD), at the G.E. Booth Water Resource Recovery Facility, (WWRF). An additional 40 MLD of flow capacity can support additional housing units of between 28,000 and 47,000, depending on the type of development.

Peel Region staff and their consultant have identified opportunities to make increased capacity available sooner by advancing construction through their current capital contractors, ROMAG Contracting Ltd. and CIMA Canada Inc. This will result in additional capacity being available by 2028 instead of 2039, provide better value for tax dollars and support project growth targets from Bill 23.

Peel staff are working on the new capital works master plan, scheduled for completion in 2025, which includes an assessment of the infrastructure required to meet Bill 23 growth projections. As part of this planning work staff are identifying projects that can be advanced earlier. The investment to increase capacity at G.E. Booth is one such project.

The G.E. Booth (Lakeview) Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) is the Region of Peel’s largest wastewater treatment plant.  The facility originally went into service in 1955 and has undergone multiple expansions and currently has a capacity of 518 MLD. The plant serves the eastern portion of the Region of Peel and part of York Region. The plant is designed to treat municipal wastewater from residential, commercial, and industrial customers.

Hazel McCallion Line – Construction Liaison Committee Update

By Announcement, Hurontario LRT, Planning & Development, Resources, Ward 1

ONGOING and UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION:

The 2024 construction year is in full swing as crews remain busy along the project corridor in Mississauga South. Most of this work involves completing utility relocation and upgrades on both sides of Hurontario Street. Once the utility works wrap up in the coming months, road widening activities on both sides of Hurontario Street will begin, making room for guideway construction and track installation in the center of the roadway. Residents and businesses can expect to see:

  •  changes to the existing boulevard, driveways, sidewalks; and
  • improvements to the multi-use pathway on the east side of the street.

Here’s a snippet of ongoing and upcoming construction activities you can expect for February and March:

  • The new station at Port Credit is starting to take shape. At the platform level, work continues with forming and pouring the walls and at the street level, mechanical and electrical installation is nearing completion.
  • Alectra duct bank works continue along the boulevard on the west side of Hurontario Street between Mineola Road West and Indian Valley Trail. These works are completed in conjunction with the installation of new hydro poles and the stringing of aerial cables along the east side of Hurontario Street between Mineola and Pinewood Trail. Once complete, the plan is to remove the old hydro poles along the west side of the road and convert the electrical service to those properties from aerial to underground. In doing so, we are working with individual property owners and businesses to access their property and construct the duct banks up to their electrical metre bases. To do this work safely and efficiently, there will be temporary power outages and driveway impacts to prepare for these upgrades to the delivery of service.
  • Construction of a new Bell manhole northwest at Pinetree Way is ongoing and will continue until March 2024.
  • Connections for Rogers telecoms between Park Street and Eaglewood Boulevard are ongoing and expected to be complete by mid to late February.
  • While most of the water, storm, and sanitary infrastructure has already been upgraded and relocated in this area, there are a few minor areas remaining to install storm and sanitary pending the decommissioning and demolition of Inglewood and the handover of Eaglewood as well as at the new station at Port Credit.

  • The new bridge structure is complete at Eaglewood Boulevard and a small section of guideway and track has been constructed and installed at the future intersection. We are working with the City of Mississauga on the installation of temporary traffic signals before decommissioning the existing intersection at Inglewood Drive. Once complete, the new intersection will be handed over to the City of Mississauga which is expected in March.
  • Once Eaglewood structure is commissioned and Inglewood structure is decommissioned, a small section of flood walls and creek bed will be completed north of the new Eaglewood intersection.
  • Installation of an acoustic fence is expected to take place in February along the east side of Hurontario Street north of the plaza at Eaglewood to just south of Mineola Road East. The fence is expected to be completed by early March.
