Watermain system improvements
Update on construction in your area – South Sheridan Way, Indian Grove and Indian Road. Project 13-1347 H1
The Region of Peel is replacing aging watermain on Indian Grove as part of our maintenance program. The current watermain was installed in the 1950s and is at the end of its lifespan.
A larger watermain that provides water to the Lorne Park area will also be installed along with the smaller (local) watermain on Indian Grove. The local watermain is on one side of the street with the larger watermain to follow on the opposite side of the street.
- The large watermain and a valve chamber were installed on South Sheridan Way from Tridom Court to Indian Grove.
- A short section of sanitary sewer and a new manhole were installed on South Sheridan Way at Indian Grove.
- South Sheridan Way will be re-opened to traffic by the end of the day on Friday, July 23.
Coming up in the next two weeks
- The Contractor will be constructing a new small diameter watermain on Indian Road at Temagami Crescent to provide better system connectivity.
- The Contractor will be working on the existing watermain on Indian Road to install a valve.
- The sanitary manhole on Indian Grove at South Sheridan Way will be rehabilitated.
- We are on schedule to complete most of the work (including all digging) by the end of 2021. Some restoration work (i.e. sod and landscaping) may need to be completed in Spring 2022.
Reducing the impact of construction
- We have put in a road closure on Indian Grove during construction. Residents will be allowed to access their properties, but no through traffic will be allowed.
- For everyone’s safety, please avoid driving through the active construction area. Residents should access their property from the south end of Indian Grove if their property is south of the active construction area, and from the north end if their property is north of construction.
- We may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you to arrange for the best time and for alternate access, if needed. Pedestrian access will always be maintained.
- We may need to temporarily shut off your water when connecting to the new watermain. It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to do this. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours. We will do our best to notify you.
- If we must shut off your water because of an emergency, we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
- We will let you know if there are any significant project changes.
In-ground sprinkler systems
- We recommend that you remove your sprinkler lines within 3 metres of the curb to avoid damage.
- Please email us if you would like to discuss your underground irrigation or sprinkler system outside your property line.
Did you know
- The quality of water leaving our treatment facilities and entering your home must be monitored to demonstrate compliance with the provincial drinking water quality standards. That’s why water testing takes place at Peel’s treatment plants and throughout the distribution system.
- Our Water and Wastewater Regulatory Compliance team reviews all test results. If the results do not meet water quality standards, immediate action is taken to report the incident to the Medical Officer of Health and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks and take steps to fix it.
