What Work is Happening?

To prepare for upcoming mining works at Laird Station, a careful inspection of watermains in the area is required. 

Crews will complete water leakage detection for the watermains on Eglinton Avenue East between Sutherland Drive and Brentcliffe Road. The scope of work includes testing watermains and associated fittings on Eglinton and 10 meters north/south of Eglinton. 

Testing will be done in 1-2 metre intervals using acoustical equipment called Electronic Ground Microphones and Acoustic Signal Level Meters (see photo). These pieces of equipment will be visible to the public during testing, but they do not emit noise.

A small traffic control set up and a Paid Duty Officer will be on site as crews move from area to area along testing the required areas.

Hours of Work

  • Work is required for one night on Tuesday, August 8 (10pm to 7am).
