Construction in Peel: Mississauga

Water Service Replacement on Southfork Drive
Project #15-1300

Project Updates

We have finished the work. The project is under warranty until June 2018.

What are we doing?

  • Replacement and lowering of your water service and others along Southfork Drive that have experienced freezing in previous years, as shown on the attached map.

Why?

  • Due to the extremely cold temperatures of the past two winters frost penetration was the deepest level seen in the last 20 years. To minimize impact to our services, the Region of Peel has begun a program to move water pipes that are been prone to freezing lower in the ground.

When?

  • We expect to start work on the week of March 31, 2016.
  • The project should be completed by April 22, 2016, weather permitting.

Working Hours

  • Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, 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 on private property. 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

  • Disturbed lawns will be restored with topsoil and sod to pre-construction condition.
  • 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.

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 from edge to edge across the driveway. 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.

Repairing the Road, Curbs, and Sidewalks

  • We will start restoring the road and boulevard once all water services are complete, weather permitting.

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.
