West trunk sanitary sewer diversion
Mississauga Rd., Queen St. South, Queen St. North, Britannia Rd. West, Erin Centre Blvd. Project 19-2208.
Notice of pre-design field investigation
The Region of Peel is undertaking investigations related to the installation of a new sanitary sewer system in your area. Sanitary sewers are underground pipes that carry wastewater from your home to a wastewater treatment plant. Wastewater is created when water goes down the drain or is flushed down the toilet. As pipes age and our population grows, we need to repair and replace older sewers to keep providing high quality wastewater services to you.
As we plan for future construction, we will be in your neighborhood conducting field investigations along Mississauga Road, Queen Street South, Queen Street North, Britannia Road West and Erin Centre Blvd.
- 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.
- We may drill holes to collect soil samples, determine ground conditions, or confirm utility locations. These holes may be drilled in the road or the municipal right-of-way, the land owned by the municipality between the street and your water service box. (A water service box is a small, round metal valve in your driveway or lawn that typically marks your front property line.)
- 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
We expect these activities to take place between July 2022 to December 2023.
Contractor and working hours
The work will be completed by various contractors under contract to the Region of Peel. The contractors’ normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the City of Mississauga bylaws.
There may be minor traffic disruptions during these activities. If we must reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
