Notice of sanitary sewer construction in your neighbourhood
Project #16-2300 A
What are we doing?
The Region of Peel will be working in your neighborhood to install new sanitary sewer pipes and maintenance holes, See map (PDF) and schedule (PDF). The work is a part of the Region’s commitment to maintaining and improving services which include replacing aging pipes and abandoning the existing sanitary sub-trunk sewer located along Mullet Creek.
This project is divided into two Phases, 3A and 3B:
- In phase 3A, a new large diameter sanitary trunk sewer will be installed along Joymar Dr. by trenchless method (microtunneling).
- Phase 3B will include replacement of the local sewers on various streets including Siberry Rd, Andrea Crt, Pioneer Dr., Donata Dr., Isherwood Crt., Jocelyn Dr., Theodore Dr., Beejay Crt., Turney Dr. and Thomas St.
- Construction of Phase 3A on Joymar Dr. and the intersection of Millcreek Dr. and Britannia Rd. West is anticipated to start at the beginning of February 2020, weather permitting. The project is expected to be substantially completed by the end of December 2020. We anticipate completing the works, including restorations, for the Phase 3A by late spring of 2021.
- Construction of Phase 3B will follow the completion of Phase 3A.
How will this impact you?
- The work will be phased to minimize traffic disruption in the area.
- Regular working hours will be between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
- Pedestrian access to houses will be maintained at all times.
- Temporary road closure on Joymar Dr. south of Siberry Rd. and at the intersection of Britannia Rd. and Pioneer Dr. will be required during Phase 3A construction. For more detailed information please refer to the attached map and schedule. The detour routes will be established.

Driveway and parking information
- We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane and on-street parking will be reduced
- We may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you before we do this to arrange the best 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.
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. The Region cannot completely replace your driveway.
Tree trimming and sod replacement
- 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.
- The contractor will take care of any sod we replace for 30 days. You can help it stay healthy by watering it for one hour in the early morning, two or three times a week, especially in hot or dry weather.
- 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.
Underground sprinkler systems
- Please tell the inspector if you have a sprinkler system outside your property line (i.e. the boulevard). We recommend moving the sprinkler lines to inside your property to avoid damage.
Interrupting your water supply
- It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water. Occasionally we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
- If we have to shut off your water because of an emergency, we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
- Your garbage or recycling and organics containers will be picked up on your regularly scheduled collection day. It is the contractor’s responsibility to move your containers to a location where our collection vehicles can pick them up.
Empty containers will be returned to their related address so please ensure your house number is clearly marked on each bin.
