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 17 from 8:00 a.m. to approximately 12:00 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 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)
