What: To prepare for west headwall construction for the future Bayview Station, crews are rehabilitating and upgrading an existing underground sewer on Eglinton Avenue East between east of Banff Road and west of Bayview Avenue. 

When: Work began in December, 2015, and will continue for several weeks. Work may be rescheduled or adjusted due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Please be advised: 

Neighbouring residents may experience a distinctive odour from water being discharged into the sanitary/storm sewer. Typically, properties have a trap on the building services which prevents the smell from coming back into the dwelling. In some older properties, this trap may not exist or it may be too try to neutralize the odour. To reduce these odours, pour water into basement floor drain(s) or insert a towel to plug the drain. On a regular basis, this practice helps prevent unwanted sewer gases from entering the home.
