Construction in Peel: Mississauga

Watermain Service Replacements
Apple Gate Court
Project 16-1301 A

We have finished the work. The project is under warranty until November 2019.

What are we doing?

  • Replacing and improving the aging water services on Apple Gate Court from Queensbridge Drive to the end.
  • Replacing the water service pipe to your service box and looping existing 50mm watermain at the end of the cul-de-sac.

Why?

  • To upgrade the water system capacity and reliability as part of the Region of Peel’s State of Good Repair program.

When?

  • We expect to start work on or about July 24, 2017, starting at Queensbridge Drive.
  • The project should be completed before September 30, 2017. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.
  • We will start restoring the road when all water system replacements and transfers are complete, and as weather permits.

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.

Waste Collection

  • Your garbage, recycling and organics containers will continue to be picked up on your regularly scheduled day. It is the contractor’s responsibility to move your garbage, recycling and organics bins to a location where our collection vehicles can pick them up. Empty containers will be returned to their corresponding addresses. Please make sure your house number is clearly marked on each bin.

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.
  • It is very common for the work area to settle a bit following construction. If you notice any settlement, please let the project manager or inspector know and we will ensure the contractor fixes it.

Home Owners Responsibilities

  • A new water service line will be brought up to the property line where a new water service box will also be installed. Where possible your water line will be brought up to the property line using trenchless methods. However, the area around the water service box will be excavated.
  • Your home is connected to a series of underground pipes that connect to a municipal water supply and wastewater collection system.
  • As a homeowner, you are responsible for the maintenance of pipes that fall on the private side of the property line. The Region of Peel owns and maintains the water meter and the remote reading device on the private side of the property line, and maintains pipes that are located on the public side of the property line.

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.
  • 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.

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.
