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.
