The Peel Region 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 Friday, July 26th, 2:00am to 7:00am. If we need to reschedule this work due to weather or other circumstances, we will let you know the new date and time.

Property owner/manager responsibilities during a water interruption

As a property owner/manager, it is your responsibility to:

  • Ensure maintenance, mechanical or plumbing staff are on site during the water interruption, as it may affect internal systems that rely on water such as boilers, fire suppression, and alarms.
  • Notify the fire alarm company if the interruption could affect an alarm system.
  • Have a fire watch completed during the water interruption, as the building’s sprinkler protection system will not function when the water supply is shut off.

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). 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 the water meter (usually located in the basement). If it is leaking, call Water Meter Installations Dispatch at:

  • 905-791-7800 extension 3226 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday to Friday)
  • 905-791-7800 extension 4409 (after hours or statutory holidays)

Heavy rains release partially treated wastewater into Lake Ontario

By Announcement, Resources, Ward 1

BRAMPTON, ON (July 16, 2024) – Due to recent heavy rains and subsequent flooding, an overflow of partially treated wastewater from the G. E. Booth wastewater treatment facility has been released into Lake Ontario. The exact amount of water is unknown at this time. Partial bypasses are common during high rainfall events.

The drinking water supply remains clean and safe for consumption. Our water treatment facilities are operating effectively, ensuring the highest standards of water quality.

Heavy rains can flush pollutants into water bodies. Residents are advised to refrain from swimming or engaging in any water-related activities along the Lake Ontario beaches in Mississauga until further notice. Please check the beach water testing site for the most recent results.

Peel Region is closely monitoring the situation and will provide updates as more information becomes available. We encourage residents to stay informed through our official communication channels.

Waste Exemption Period Amendment Resolution – Regional Council July 11, 2024

By Resources, Stephen’s Initiatives

In March 2023, Regional Council approved the discontinuation of exemption periods as of the beginning of the next collection contract combined with better promotion of the bulky item collection program and overall waste reduction efforts. This decision aligns with Peel’s target of achieving 75 per cent waste diversion by 2034.

It was suggested by staff that eliminating exemption periods, combined with better promotion of Peel’s bulky item collection program will result in operational efficiencies and fewer late and missed collections.

Councillor Dasko introduced a resolution at Regional Council related to Resolution 2023-216 from the March 23, 2023 Regional Council meeting, as it relates to Clause 2.a that reads “Elimination of Exemption Periods for curbside residents and the removal of Exemption Periods from By-law 35-2015”, be amended to delete the subject section.  The Resolution passed, therefore Exemption Periods will continue when the new contract is in effect.

Peel Regional Police Update: Project OFFRAMP

By Announcement, Resources

This year, Peel Regional Police led a Joint Forces Operation called Project Offramp, targeting street racing and stunt driving with officers identifying and actively patrolling hotspot locations across the Greater Toronto Area.

Working with neighbouring agencies, they investigated 933 vehicles and issued 2,140 Provincial Offence Notices, including:

  • 96 Stunt Driving Charges
  • 246 Improper/No Muffler Charges

Despite consistent efforts to enforce and raise awareness on the dangers of street racing and stunt driving, Peel Regional Police recognizes that these activities continue to be a public safety concern across Peel Region.

PRP are always looking to identity additional measures and initiatives to deter and curb this type of behaviour on our roads, to keep our roads safe for everyone.
