It's construction season: new video gives a behind-the-scenes view on watermain construction
Brampton, ON. (May 23, 2023) – Peel Region maintains the municipal watermains in Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga neighbourhoods. These watermains (underground pipes) bring tap water from a treatment plant to homes and businesses.
A newly launched Watermain Construction in Your Neighborhood goes behind the scenes to help residents understand what happens when these pipes are repaired or replaced.
The video outlines the steps Peel Region takes to let residents know what happens before, during, and after construction, including:
- How you will be notified.
- What you can do to prepare for construction.
- What you'd typically see when crews are working in your neighbourhood.
- How driveways, sidewalks, and sod are repaired once construction is finished.
Watermain Construction in Your Neighborhood also answers the most-commonly asked questions about construction and its effect on traffic, parking, water pressure, and waste collection.
