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.


  • 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 when the weather if favorable to do so in spring/summer 2015.

Repairing Your Driveway

  • If you live on Folkway Drive and 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 from edge to edge across the driveway. Unfortunately the Region cannot completely replace your driveway.
  • If you live on Powderhorn Court, Powderhorn Crescent and Trapper Crescent Temporary driveway restoration will take place as the City of Mississauga will be replacing curbs, sidewalks and pavement in 2016.
  • 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 services transfers are completed and as weather permits.
  • Our contractor will be completing permanent restoration on Folkway Drive which is to include asphalt placement, concrete curb and concrete sidewalks to those areas which were removed during the watermain installation.
  • Our contractor will pave only the trench they dug, and install temporary curbs and sidewalks on Powderhorn Court, Powderhorn Crescent and Trapper Crescent because the City of Mississauga will be paving the these streets in 2016.

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

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.

How Did We Do?

  • After we’ve finished, we will give you a postage-paid card for you to rate our work.
  • Please complete the card and mail it back to us.
