Herridge Pumping Station Expansion. Project 181979
The Region is making improvements to the Herridge Pumping Station at 2200 Sheridan Park Drive. Map of work area.
The construction is needed to improve existing water services now and for the future. Tap water comes from a treatment plant at Lake Ontario, and is delivered through a distribution system, including facilities like the Herridge Pumping Station and Reservoir, to your home.
What are we doing?
- Expanding the pumping station building within the property limits.
- Upgrading the electrical equipment inside the pumping station.
- Landscaping, planting and restoring the site.
We expect work will start on or around March 27, 2020 and be completed in the fall of 2021.
Construction will normally take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. If we do work outside these hours, we will let you know.
- We will try to disturb you as little as possible. Noise and disruption will be reduced once the exterior work is complete and we are working inside the pumping station.
- We may sometimes need to run generators to maintain operations at the facility. All power generation will meet the strictest noise and emissions measures.
- Access to Sheridan Park, the baseball diamond and the soccer pitch will not be impacted further beyond the adjacent watermain project, which is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2021. At that time, we will restore the soccer pitch and park area.
Interrupting your water supply
We do not anticipate interrupting your water supply during construction. However, if it is necessary, it is our goal to let you know 48 hours (two days) in advance and to minimise any disruptions.
We will let you know if there are major changes to our plans. Updates will be posted on this webpage.
