Watermain replacement and improvements
Lady Di Court and Aquarius Court. Project 22-1310 I
The Region of Peel will be working in your area to replace a section of the watermain along Aquarius Court and Lady Di Court as shown on the attached map. Watermains are underground pipes that bring tap water from our water treatment plants to your neighbourhood. As pipes age and our population grows, we need to replace older watermains to keep providing high quality water to you.
Construction is planned to begin on Wednesday July 20, 2022 and be completed by August 12, 2022. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.
Co-ordination with other works
As we co-ordinate works with City of Mississauga, our work may be followed by road construction, curb replacement and/or resurfacing. In this case, our restoration may only be temporary. When City of Mississauga has finished the roadworks, they will complete a comprehensive restoration.
Contractor and working hours
The work will be completed by NSJ WaterworX under contract to the Region of Peel. This contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but shorter working days would require your neighbourhood to be under construction for a longer period of time.
Traffic and parking
We may need to temporarily close roads or reduce traffic to a single lane during construction. If we must reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions. On-street parking will be reduced during construction when we are actively working on your street.
Interrupting your water supply
We anticipate that this construction project will require temporarily shutting off your water.
- It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we plan to shut off your water for an extended period (several hours). Occasionally we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
- If we need to shut off your water for a short duration (less than one hour), we will knock on your door to notify you.
If we must shut off your water due to an emergency, we will knock on your door to alert you, and do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Repairing grassy areas
The contractor will replace any damaged sod (grass) on the boulevard or your front lawn and will take care of the new sod for 30 days. You can help the sod stay healthy by watering it. A longer ‘deep root watering’ works better to establish new sod than watering more frequently for a shorter time. Watering in the early morning allows more water to soak in instead of evaporating.
The City of Mississauga will complete roadwork on your street this summer. The Region of Peel’s repairs are temporary, as the city will complete restoration as part of their roadwork. Your city will send you a separate notice about this additional construction.
It may be necessary to block your driveway for a short time when crews are digging the trench for the watermain, replacing your water service box and pipe, or completing other construction activities. If so, we will knock on your door to notify you. If a trench prevents access to your driveway, the contractor will have metal road plates available to allow access if required. Whenever possible, we will work to ensure businesses can be accessed. Please contact us if you have special needs related to access.
If you receive waste collection from the Region of Peel, your garbage, recycling, and organics will continue to be picked up on your regularly scheduled day. It is the contractor’s responsibility to move your garbage, recycling, and organics bins from the end of your driveway to a location where waste collection vehicles can pick them up. Empty containers will be returned to their corresponding addresses. Please make sure your house number is clearly marked on each bin. This helps us return empty bins to the correct address.
Safety during construction
Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible.

Keeping you informed
We will let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
