Advance notice - Sanitary sewer system improvement
Malta Avenue. Project 19-2158
The Region of Peel anticipates installing new sanitary sewer pipes and maintenance holes in your area within the next two years, as shown on the attached map. 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 replace older sewers to keep providing high quality wastewater services to you.
Before construction begins
Before we start construction, you may notice several activities in your neighbourhood:
- 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 in the road or municipal right-of-way (the land between the street and your water service box) to collect soil samples, determine ground conditions, or confirm utility locations.
- We will take pictures and record video to help us restore the area as close as possible to its former condition, after construction takes place.
We expect these activities to commence in Fall 2023.
Keeping you informed
We are currently in the early planning stages, so we can’t give exact dates for when we will do the work.
In addition, as your city’s future planning activities may change, we may alter our plans to improve sanitary sewers in your neighbourhood. We will deliver more detailed information to your home closer to the proposed construction date.
