Working Hours

  • Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to complete.

Traffic and Parking Control

  • We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane during construction.
  • If we have to reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
  • On-street parking will be reduced during construction.

Driveway Access

  • Due to construction activities, we may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you before we do this to arrange for the best time and for alternate access, if needed. If your driveway is blocked, you may choose to park on a side street for a short time. If you need immediate access to your driveway, the contractor will have road plates available to quickly allow access in and out of your driveway.
  • We will make sure businesses have access at all times.
  • Please call the Project Manager if you have special needs related to access or business hours.

Irrigation or Sprinkler Systems

  • Please tell the inspector if you have underground irrigation or a sprinkler system outside your property line.
  • You may wish to move the sprinkler lines to inside your private property to avoid damage.

Trimming Trees

  • If tree branches within the right-of-way interfere with construction, the contractor will have the trees pruned before equipment enters the drip line of the tree.
  • If tree branches on private property interfere with construction, they will be pruned back to the nearest suitable trunk, crotch or branch.
  • The contractor will ask you for permission before cutting any branches. If you do not allow the contractor onto your property to trim the branches, the branches will be cut vertically at the property line.

Interrupting Your Water Supply

  • It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
  • If we have to shut off your water because of an emergency, we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

Vibrations

  • You may feel slight vibrations from the construction work.

Replacing and Taking Care of Your Sod

  • The contractor will take care of any sod we replace for 30 days.
  • You can help the sod to stay healthy by watering it for one hour in the early morning, two or three times a week. This is especially important in hot or dry weather.
  • We will replace your sod as soon as we can, but there may be a short delay.

Repairing Your Driveway

  • If we need to cut your driveway to replace the existing service valve or access the watermain, we will repair the asphalt in the disturbed area. Unfortunately the Region cannot completely replace your driveway.
  • Several weeks before the driveway restoration work, we will send you an update with contact information for the contractor, in case you wish to have the remainder of your driveway (private side) paved at the same time.
  • If you have any concerns, please call the Project Manager.
  • We will repair your driveway as soon as we can, but there may be a short delay.

Repairing the Road, Curbs, and Sidewalks

  • We will start restoring the road and boulevard once all replacements and service transfers are complete and as weather permits.
  • We will complete the restoration on a street-by-street basis.

Private-side Servicing

  • We will replace the water service pipe to your service box (the round valve near the property line).
  • As the pipe between the service box and the building is probably the same age and condition as the watermain, you may wish to replace it to ensure a constant supply of high-quality drinking water to your tap. This is the property owner’s responsibility; the Region cannot do this work for you.
  • For more information on replacing the private-side water service, please visit peelregion.ca/pw/water/private-side-water-service.htm

Closing Your Private Well

  • If you have a private well, we strongly recommend you decommission it as per Ministry of Environment Regulations (Ontario Wells Regulation 903). The Region of Peel has a Private Well Abandonment Program to decommission private wells on existing private residential or farming properties on a first-come, first-served basis, at no cost to the resident. Please visit peelregion.ca/water/water-trtmt/wellhead-abandon.htm or call
    905-791-7800, extension 4685 for more program information.
  • If you wish to keep your private well for irrigation purposes, etc., you must install an approved backflow prevention device on the water service at point of entry into the building and maintain it in working order.
  • We will write to you about how to connect your property to municipal water.

Project Updates

  • The Region of Peel will always let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
  • We will try to disturb you as little as possible.
  • Please call the project manager or inspector if you have any concerns or special needs.
