Background:
The Hanlan Water Project is the largest and most extensive watermain initiative the Region of Peel has ever designed and constructed. It includes the installation of a 2400-mm (2.4 metres or 8 foot) diameter Hanlan Feedermain and a 1500-mm (1.5 metres or 5 foot) Mississauga City Centre Subtransmission Watermain.

The feedermain will run approximately 14.5 kilometres from the Lakeview Water Treatment Plant on Lake Ontario to the Hanlan Reservoir and Pumping Station at Tomken Road and Britannia Road East. The subtransmission main will run approximately six kilometres from the Hanlan Reservoir and Pumping Station to the intersection of Cawthra Road and Burnhamthorpe Road.

Construction for the Hanlan Water Project began in 2011 and is expected to be completed by early 2017. The project is needed to meet the water demands of future population growth, including the Mississauga city centre core. The infrastructure will also provide operational flexibility in the event that the existing Hanlan Feedermain needs to be temporarily shut off for maintenance.

For information about the project visit hanlanwaterproject.ca or follow it on Twitter twitter.com/hanlanwp.

The Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated in 1974 on the principle that certain community and infrastructure services are most cost-effectively administered over a larger geographic area. The Region of Peel serves more than one million residents in the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton and the Town of Caledon.
