Guelph Line area watermain upgrade — Prospect to Mainway

MAP_Guelph Line Area Watermain

The construction around the Guelph Line area, from Prospect Street to Mainway, is related to a watermain upgrade being done by Halton Region and expected to take until the end of 2019. A second, large diameter watermain is being built to the Washburn Reservoir and Pumping Station.

These improvements are meant to provide reliable access to high-quality drinking water to residents and businesses. The large diameter watermain will run along:

  • Prospect Street (from the Hydro One Corridor to Guelph Line);
  • Guelph Line (from Prospect Street to Mainway);
  • Mainway (from Guelph Line to the Burlington Hydro Corridor); and
  • The Burlington Hydro Corridor (from Mainway to Heathfield Drive);
  • Localized improvements will also take place in the Hydro One Corridor near New Street.

The project began in August 2017 and is expected to end in December. For more information, call 311, email accesshalton@halton.ca, or visit the Region’s website.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
