The City of Toronto is modifying and upgrading the storm and sanitary sewer system in your area in order to reduce surface basement flooding from Winter 2023until Summer 2023. This work also involves replacing the City-owned portion of substandard water services and sanitary sewer laterals. Work is planned on the following streets: Bathurst Street, Clanton Park, Delhi Avenue, Laurelcrest Avenue, Palm Drive, Raeburn Avenue and Romney Road.
The sanitary service lateral is the pipe connecting your home’s sewage plumbing to the City’s sewer. The water service is the underground pipe that brings water to your water meter and is owned by you and by the City. The part you own is from your house to the end of your property, the part the City owns is from the end of your property to the watermain.
This project is part of the Council-approved 2022 Basement Flooding Protection Program to improve the water distribution system; renew our aging infrastructure, and reduce the risk of sewer collapse or blockages that cause sewer backups and flooding.
