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, May 1st, 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)

Notice of Upcoming Construction East Avenue/Lakeshore Road to Britannia/Tomken Road

By Announcement, Resources, Ward 1

Upcoming construction work starting in your area Watermain inspection, assessment, and rehabilitation East Avenue/Lakeshore Road to Britannia/Tomken Road

 

Peel Region owns and operates important infrastructure, called “feedermains” which are responsible for carrying water throughout Peel and are considered the backbone of the water system. Proper management of this critical infrastructure is essential to the reliable delivery of water services to residents and businesses.

The existing, older Hanlan Feedermain is one of the largest feedermains in the water system and is comprised of 2100-millimetre and 1800-millimetre concrete cylinder pipes. It spans approximately 13.5 kilometres, from a water treatment plants at East Avenue and Lakeshore Road to a pumping station and reservoir facility at Britannia Road and Tomken Road. Given the feedermains age, between 29 and 45 years, and its significance in the water distribution system, Peel has prioritized it for detailed inspection, assessment and rehabilitation.

Construction
The construction activities for this project may include removing water and inspecting the watermain as well as upgrading valve chambers, installing new chambers and bringing the watermain back in service once the work is complete. Based on the findings of the internal inspection, some sections of the feedermain may need to be rehabilitated, which would be done by open cut construction resulting in local area lane interruptions.

Schedule
Due to the significant project scope, it will take three years to complete – from Spring 2024 to Spring 2027. More detailed notices will be issued prior to the start of construction.

NOTICE OF EA ADDENDUM COMMENCEMENT – Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment Queensway East Trunk Sewer Project – Addition of Watermain Upgrades

By Announcement, Resources

Background:
Peel Region has initiated a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Addendum study for proposed watermain upgrades from Stillmeadow Road to Dixie Road in the City of Mississauga (see map).

In 2022, the Region completed a Schedule C Municipal Class EA for the Wastewater Capacity Improvements in Central Mississauga which included the Queensway East Trunk Sewer (QET). Since the completion of the EA, the Region has identified the need to increase the resiliency and capacity of the water pressure system in the area (Zone 2) by upgrading the watermain within the QET study area along the Queensway (from Stillmeadow Road to Dixie Road). The improvements will service future growth and ensure continued alignment with the Region’s long-term plan for providing water service. The MCEA Addendum Study will develop and evaluate potential locations for infrastructure, considering technical constraints, the existing environment as well as stakeholder input.

Process:
This notice signals the commencement of the MCEA Addendum Study, which will define the problem, identify and evaluate alternatives, and determine a preferred solution in consultation with the City of Mississauga, regulatory agencies, the public, Indigenous Communities and stakeholders. The MCEA Addendum Study is being conducted in compliance with Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended 2007, 2011, 2015) which was the approved process followed for the 2022 EA.

Your Input is Important:
Public and agency consultation is a key element of the MCEA Addendum Study process and input will be sought throughout this study. Details regarding a future Public Information Centre (PIC) will be advertised as the MCEA Addendum Study progresses. Upon completion of the MCEA Addendum Study, an EA Addendum Report will be prepared and placed on the public record for a minimum 30-day review period. The report will detail the planning and consultation process and the preferred alternative. Comments received through the course of the Study will be considered and documented in the EA Addendum report. Additional information related to the MCEA Addendum Study and consultation process may be obtained through the project webpage at www.peelregion.ca/public-works/environmental-assessments/#current (Mississauga)

Please contact the Project Manager listed below if you have questions, would like to provide comments on the MCEA Study or be included on the mailing list:

New City webpage for building additional units

By Announcement, Resources

As part of our Housing Action Plan, the City has updated its zoning rules to make it possible for homeowners to build more homes on their property. This means, it’s easier for residents with a detached, semi-detached or town house, to build:

  • ​Up to two additional residential units – such as garden suites, garage conversions, apartments, etc. – in addition to their primary home; or
  • A new purpose-built fourplex (or fourplex conversion)

While not all properties are suitable, our research shows that a detached ARU is permitted on more than 130,000 residential lots in Mississauga. And many other homes could be converted to accommodate a second or third unit.

The City has launched a new webpage to help residents determine whether building an ARU or fourplex makes sense for them. Visit mississauga.ca/building-more-units​ to learn more.
