Fletcher’s creek sanitary trunk sewer
Sanitary sewer and maintenance hole rehabilitation
What we are doing
The Region of Peel will be working in your neighbourhood to rehabilitate the existing sanitary trunk sewer and maintenance holes in various locations. This rehabilitation work includes cleaning the interior of existing sanitary trunk sewers, the installation of a liner inside the sewer to seal cracks and joints and repairs to maintenance holes.
This work will take place on various streets in your neighbourhood and the majority of the work will occur along the Fletcher’s Creek Trail, and within the Weidman and Hart Channel. Access to the sewer is made through maintenance holes on the street and alongside the existing trails. Most of the work will not require excavation, but if required, the area will be fully restored once construction is completed.
Work is scheduled to begin within the next couple of weeks and is anticipated to be completed Summer 2021. The Construction zone will shift along the sewer alignment, therefore, residents won’t be continuously affected by late evening work and the inconvenience should be short-term.
Work will be completed during normal working hours of Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday’s as required to facilitate completing the work on time. There may be times where the working hours will need to extend later into the evening to allow for proper cure times for the new liners. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to complete.
Night work will be necessary for various sewer segments, mainly within Fletcher’s Creek Valley. We will make all attempts to minimize night work occurrences.

- Efforts will be made to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Road users may experience delays as a result of increased traffic on nearby main and side streets if temporary lane restrictions within the active construction work zones are required to complete the work safely.
- Roads may have partial lane closures to accommodate construction equipment that may be parked along the road or along various access routes.
- If we must reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
- On-street parking will be reduced during construction.
- Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
- You may experience intermittent noise and vibration during construction from various construction equipment.
- Noise reducing measures will be implemented as applicable.
- Bypass pumping systems will need to be installed on the system. These pumps will need to be operated 24 hours a day. The pumps are housed in critically silenced shrouds and will be located as far away from the homes as possible and the Contractor will be installing sound attenuating barriers around them to mitigate the noise.
- 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 your driveway is blocked, you may choose to park on a side street for a short time. If you need immediate access to your driveway, the contractor will be able to quickly allow access in and out of your driveway.
- We will make sure businesses have access at all times.
The existing trails will require closure for extended periods in various locations in order to complete the work and keep pedestrians safe. Trail closure signs and detours will be posted.
- You may experience short-term odours from resin used while the sewer is being lined.
- Although low levels of this harmless odour may be noticeable at times, it presents no risk to human health.
- Drain pipes are designed to retain water after use to help create a water barrier that prevents odour from entering your home. Once you receive the Contractor’s Service Disruption Notice in the form of a door hanger to let you know of the upcoming work, it is recommended that you pour 1-2 litres of water down every drain (ie. Showers, sinks, bathtubs, floor drains) in order to ensure a water barrier is present prior to the lining work.
- If any type of strong odour is present in your home due to a dry drain or private plumbing issues, please call the contact number on the Contractor’s Service Disruption Notice for immediate assistance.
Please minimize your water use as follows during the time your service is not operational:
- Do not use showers, bathtubs, dishwashers, or your washing machine
- Keep toilet flushing to a bare minimum
- You may continue to wash your hands but minimize your water use
These actions will reduce the possibility of sewage backing up into your basement or into your plumbing. If you have a sump pump, please call the contractor’s supervisor listed above.
Please notify the project manager listed below for any questions, comments or concerns, or if you have any special needs.
The Region of Peel will keep you informed of any changes in the project. We are committed to ensuring minimum disruption to your homes and businesses.
