What Work is Taking Place?

To increase the durability of local watermains during mining operations at Oakwood Station, sections in the vicinity of station construction zone will be lined. Lining of the watermain is a minimally invasive method of repair and rehabilitation that is commonly used throughout the City of Toronto. Using this process allows us to complete the work without excavating the entire watermain through the road.

  • Temporary water connection for all properties was activated the week of October 15th

*Properties connected to the temporary water service may experience reduced water pressure.
