The Region’s Contractor will arrange for WHS Inc. to complete preconstruction survey and record the exterior/interior condition of existing buildings and structures, environmental features and road surface conditions. A WHS Inc. representative will knock on your door prior to doing any survey on your property. There is no cost to you for the survey and you are not obligated to have it completed, however we do recommend it. Preconstruction surveys are standard construction practice. We expect that this work will take place over the next couple of weeks, weather permitting. The service will not be performed for all properties, but only for those within the alignment of the sanitary sewer and watermain construction.
- Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours are consistent with the City of Mississauga’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.
- We may need to close the streets temporarily to ensure safety of the public and to accelerate the construction.
- On street parking is allowed as per the City of Mississauga Parking Enforcement Permit #42054, however parking will be reduced in the immediate vicinity of the construction zone.
- 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.
- Please contact Project Manager if you have special needs related to the access
Irrigation or sprinkler systems
- Please tell the Region of Peel Inspector if you have an 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.
Water supply interruption
- It is our goal to notify you 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water supply. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
- In case of emergency water shut off we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
- 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 inspector know and we will ensure the contractor fixes it.
Repairing your driveway
- If we need to cut your driveway to replace the existing service, 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 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 and boulevard once all replacements and service transfers are complete and as weather permits.
- We will complete the restoration on a street-by-street basis.
- The Region of Peel will always let you know if there are any major changes to the construction schedule.
- Please call the project manager or inspector if you have any concerns or special needs.
