SCHEDULED WATER SUPPLY INTERRUPTION

The Region of Peel Public Works department regularly maintains and repairs the water system to make sure you have a reliable 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, January 15, 2021 from 12:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. If the weather is bad or if a problem arises, we will reschedule the work and will let you know the new date and time.

It is your responsibility, as a property owner, 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. If the interruption could affect an alarm system, you need to notify the alarm company. The building’s sprinkler protection system will not function during the time that the water supply is interrupted. A fire watch should be completed during this time period.

When we turn the water back on, air in the pipes may make the water cloudy and your plumbing may vibrate or make noise. If this happens, you can remove the air by briefly 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 should only have to run the water for 10 to 30 seconds but keep running it until the water is clear and any vibration or noise has stopped.

If your water meter starts to leak, 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 on statutory holidays)
