The City of Toronto is returning to complete the final portion of the watermain replacement that started in 2016. The portion of work in the intersection of Bathurst and Queen’s Quay required re-designs due to the soil conditions and location of other utilities.

Work will start on Nov 6, using an open trench to install and connect this new section of watermain to the watermain that was installed in 2016. We appreciate your patience as we work to complete this important infrastructure upgrade.


You will experience dust, noise and other inconveniences. The City will make efforts to reduce impacts.
