Watermain replacement and improvement

Winston Churchill Boulevard: Unity Gate – Dundas Street West. Project 14-1346 E

Advance notice of watermain construction

The Region of Peel anticipates building new watermains in your area this upcoming spring. Watermains are underground pipes that bring tap water from our water treatment plants to your neighbourhood. As our population grows, we need to build larger watermains to keep providing high quality water services.

This upcoming construction will take place in the municipal right-of-way - the land owned by the City of Mississauga, located 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 the area around the sidewalk. 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 neighbourhood:

  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 ensure that we restore the area as close as possible to its former condition, after construction takes place.

Keeping you informed

We are currently planning to start construction in the early spring of 2022. A construction notice will be sent out prior to construction commencing, with more detailed information on what to expect.
