The Region of Peel will be working in your area to install a new sanitary trunk sewer offline storage facility, and properly abandon an existing sanitary trunk sewer, as shown on the attached map.
Sanitary sewers are underground pipes that carry wastewater from your home or business to a wastewater treatment plant. Wastewater is created when water goes down the drain or is flushed down the toilet. To respond to climate change and meet the demands of a growing population, we will be constructing an underground facility that will store wastewater during large rain events. (For more information, see peelregion.ca/publicworks/ environmental‐assessments/mississauga/east‐trunk‐ss‐offline‐storage‐facility.asp for Environmental Assessment.)

To complete this work, we will need to remove trees, dig very large holes, install large pipes, construct underground concrete structures, stabilize the Etobicoke Creek banks, plant trees, and restore the area as close as possible to its previous state.

This work will take place within the Etobicoke Valley Dog Park. Construction access to the work area will be through Southcreek Road.

Construction schedule
Construction is planned to begin within the next few weeks and be completed by Spring 2024.
All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.

Contractor and working hours
The work will be completed by EBC Inc. and supported by IBI Group, both under contract to the Region of Peel. This contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. To complete the work on time, there may be times when work will be completed later into the evening or on Saturdays. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but shorter working days would require your neighbourhood to be under construction for a longer period of time. We will attempt to minimize overnight work whenever possible.

Closure of Etobicoke Valley Dog Park and associated trails
To keep pedestrians and their pets safe, the Etobicoke Valley Dog Park and the trails leading to the dog park will be closed until all work is completed in Spring 2024. Trail closure signs will be posted on site.
Alternate dog park locations can be found by visiting mississauga.ca/events‐and‐attractions/parks/finda‐park/

Once all work is completed and the dog park is reopened, we will notify residents through an advertisement in thelocal newspaper and by distributing notices to the surrounding area.

Traffic and parking
We will work to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents.
 Temporary lane restrictions may be required on Dundas Street East near the active construction area to complete the work safely. As a result, road users may experience delays on Dundas Street East.
 The south portion of Southcreek Road will be closed to traffic, as well as the Etobicoke Valley Dog Park’s parking lot. Access to businesses will be maintained.
 There will be no on‐street parking on Southcreek Road during construction.
 Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Noise and vibrations
You may experience noise and vibrations at times during construction from various construction equipment. We will put in place measures to reduce noise when needed.

Safety during construction
Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible.

Project funding
The Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) is a cost‐shared infrastructure funding program between the Federal and Provincial governments and has committed $8 million of combined funding toward this Region of Peel project.

Keeping you informed
We will let you know if there are any major changes to the plans. Information on this project can also be found at peelregion.ca/pw/construction/miss/18‐2441.asp
