What are we doing?
- The Region of Peel is installing a new watermain on Mount Pleasant Road from Coates Hill Court to 850 metres north of Hunsden Sideroad to improve water system reliability and provide service to existing and future buildings that front the municipal right-of-way.
- Properties currently serviced with municipal water on Mt Pleasant Road will not have their water supply impacted during the construction as the new watermain will supply a different pressure zone. View area map (PDF).
- We expect to start work on or about July 19, 2017and should be completed by April 2018.
- All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.
- We will start restoring the road when all watermain works are completed and as weather permits.

- Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to complete.
- We will need to reduce traffic to a single lane with flag persons during construction.
- If we have to reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
- Due to construction activities, we may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you before we do this to arrange for the best time and for alternate access, if needed. 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.
- Please call the Project Manager if you have special needs related to access or business hours.
Irrigation or Sprinkler Systems
- Please tell the inspector if you have underground irrigation or a sprinkler system outside your property line.
- You may wish to move the sprinkler lines to inside your private property to avoid damage.
- If tree branches within the right-of-way interfere with construction, the contractor will have the trees pruned before equipment enters the drip line of the tree.
- 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.
Interrupting Your Water Supply
- If you are currently supplied with municipal water, it is our goal to let you know 48 hours in advance if we need to shut off your water.
- 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, recycling and organics containers 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 to a location where our 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.
Vibrations and Noise
- You may feel slight vibrations from the construction work, and hear construction related noise during working hours.
Repairing the Road
- We will start restoring the road and boulevard once all new watermain and water services have been installed and as weather permits.
Replacing and Taking Care of Your Sod
- Once damaged sod is reinstated, the contractor will take care of it for 30 days.
- You can help the sod to stay healthy by watering it for one hour in the early morning, two or three times a week. This is especially important in hot or dry weather.
- We will replace your sod as soon as we can, but there may be a short delay.
- It is common for the work area to settle slightly following construction. If you notice any settlement, please inform the project manager or construction inspector and we will ensure the contractor repairs it.
Connecting to the Municipal Water Supply
- Properties along the proposed watermain route that front Mount Pleasant Road and are currently serviced by private wells may choose to have the Region of Peel install a new 25 millimeter (1 inch) water service to the property line during the watermain installation works. Larger services may be provided to industrial, commercial, institutional and agricultural properties in conjunction with a planning application.
- If your property is located along the proposed watermain route and is serviceable from the new watermain, a second Resident Notice titled ‘Connecting to Municipal Water Supply’ is provided in pair with this notice which outlines the process and fees required to connect.
Private Water Well Monitoring
- If you have a private well and have previously consented to well monitoring, the hydrogeological engineering firm Watermark Environmental Ltd. hired by the Region of Peel will continue to log and monitor well levels until construction is complete to assess and protect groundwater resources.
- The Region of Peel will always let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
- Please call the project manager or construction inspector if you have any concerns or special needs.
How Did We Do?
