Advance notice – Watermain improvements

Dixie Road from Mayfield Road to Campbell’s Cross Creek. Project 22-1979

The Region of Peel anticipates modifying the existing watermains in your area within the next two years. Watermains are underground pipes that bring tap water from our water treatment plants to your neighbourhood. We need to modify the existing watermains to keep providing high quality water to you during future growth.

Important note

This upcoming construction will take place in the municipal right-of-way. The municipal right-of way is the land owned by your city between the street and your water service box (small, round metal valve in either your driveway or lawn). This work may impact the bottom of your driveway and an area around your lawn. We therefore recommend delaying any major landscaping or driveway paving until after this construction has been completed.

Before we start construction, you may notice several activities in your area:

  1. We will survey your street and use temporary spray paint or flags to mark the location of underground gas, hydro, and cable on roads, driveways, and lawns.
  2. We may drill holes in the road or municipal right-of-way (the land between the street and your water service box) to collect soil samples, determine ground conditions, or confirm utility locations.
  3. We will take pictures and record video to help us restore the area as close as possible to its former condition, after construction takes place.

We expect these activities to take place between summer 2022 to winter 2022.

Keeping you informed

We are currently in the early planning stages, so we can’t give exact dates for when we will do the work.

In addition, as your town’s future planning activities may change, we may alter our plans to improve watermains in your neighbourhood.

We will deliver more detailed information to your address closer to the proposed construction date.
