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 Tuesday, July 25th, 2023, from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 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.

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)

Street Sweeping Program 2023

By Uncategorized

The City’s annual Spring Street Sweeping Program will begin on Monday, April 24th, 2023 (weather permitting).

We know that road users are eager for roads to be swept and make every effort to schedule street sweeping as early in the spring as possible. Generally, street sweeping begins after the seasons change and we have enjoyed a period of mild temperatures. This ensures that we can remove winter maintenance equipment from the Works yards to make space for street sweepings, and that lingering snow piles have melted. After our spring street sweeping is complete, we will continue to maintain roadways through our regular street sweeping program.

 

Sharing Lanes Returns with Focus on Road Safety

By Issues, Uncategorized, Ward 1

This summer, the City of Mississauga is taking a creative approach to improving safety for road users with the return of its tactical urbanism project Sharing Lanes – and you’re invited to share your feedback and ideas.

Tactical urbanism is an approach to city building that uses affordable, temporary measures to demonstrate different uses of the roadway and public space. This year’s Sharing Lanes project will test new ideas on some of the sidewalks and roadway sections of The Credit Woodlands, specifically around Bert Fleming Park and two nearby schools, to increase safety for vulnerable road users and improve access to Bert Fleming Park.

Plans for the space include:

  • Traffic calming measures including piloting a new configuration for the roadway around Bert Fleming Park
  • Vibrant designs on the roadway in front of two nearby schools
  • Transformed streets where a section of the roadway is replaced with a car-free community plaza space that will provide space for things like seating and community activities

Community feedback is an important part of planning these installations. During the month of April, residents are invited to share their thoughts and experiences online or at an in-person community meeting.

The feedback received will help the City understand what pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and drivers experience when traveling in the area. It will also help prioritize the best way to use the space to enhance the enjoyment and safety of all road users.
