Heart Lake Road from Mayfield Road to Old School Road
What we are doing
- Installing three watermains (1200mm, 900mm, 400mm diameter). View area map (PDF).
- The two larger watermains will serve the new Victoria Reservoir on King Street. The 400mm diameter watermain will serve the homes and businesses on Heart Lake Road. You will have the opportunity to connect to this new watermain. Learn how.
- Work started in February 2018.
- The project should be completed before August 2019. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.
- We will start restoring the road when the watermain installation is complete, and as weather permits.

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Repairing your driveway
- If we need to cut your driveway to access the watermain, we will repair the asphalt in the disturbed area from edge to edge across the driveway. Unfortunately the Region cannotcompletely 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
- We will start restoring the road once the watermain installation work is complete and as weather permits.
- 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.

How much will it cost
- Visit peelregion.ca/pw/water/rates/connect-rates for more information, including costs for larger services for industrial or commercial users.
- Please remember you will have to pay your plumber/contractor to complete the work on your private property.
What to do with your well
- We strongly advise you to decommission your existing private well, to adhere to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change legislation (Ontario Wells Regulation 903). This protects the groundwater, removes physical hazards and protects your property value. Learn more about the importance of decommissioning your well at ontario.ca/page/water-supply-wells-requirements-and-best-practices.
- 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 property owner. For more program information, please call 905-791-7800, ext. 4685 or visit peelregion.ca/pw/water/water-trtmt/wellhead-abandon.htm.
- If you wish to keep your private well for irrigation purposes, etc., you must have a qualified person:
- Physically disconnect the well piping from the service connection supplying water to the building.
- Install an approved backflow prevention device.
- Contact the Town of Caledon regarding having the work inspected.
- Keep your backflow prevention device in good working order.
