CONSTRUCTION WORK STARTING IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD – Laughton Avenue, Truscott Drive, Barsuda Drive, and Petrie Way

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1

February 16, 2023


The Region of Peel will be working in your neighbourhood to rehabilitate the existing sanitary sewer system on Laughton Avenue, Truscott Drive, Barsuda Drive and Petrie Way. Sanitary sewers are underground pipes that carry wastewater from your home to a wastewater treatment plant. Wastewater is created when water is flushed down the toilet, or goes down the drain in your sink, tub, or shower.
To extend the service life of the sewer under your street, Peel Region’s contractors will clean the existing sewer pipe and place a new resin (plastic) lining within it. This work will be completed underground with specialized equipment, and will not require digging trenches in your neighbourhood. Read More
