East to West Diversion Sanitary Trunk Sewer

Contract 1. Project # 16-2291

The Region of Peel will be installing a large sanitary sewer pipe along Derry Rd. West. View area map (PDF). The pipe will be constructed completely in a tunnel. In order to do the tunneling, four large access points will be created for the tunnel along the construction route.

This work is to improve the existing wastewater service. Wastewater comes from flushing toilets, having a shower or washing dishes. Sanitary sewer pipes take wastewater from your home to a treatment plant.
