Basement Flooding Protection Program Sanitary & Storm Sewer Upgrades and Watermain Replacements in the Weston Area Contracts: 18ECS-LU-10FP Basement Flooding Protection Program work in the Weston area is progressing well and is on schedule for full neighbourhood restoration and completion in spring 2021. We appreciate your patience during this important construction. Please see answers to some common questions and answers about the work below:

Q: Why is construction work taking place? A: The City of Toronto is modifying and upgrading the storm and sanitary sewer system in your area in order to reduce surface and basement flooding. This work also involves replacing the City-owned portion of substandard water services and sanitary sewer laterals. This project is part of the Council-approved 2020 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.

Q: What work is left?

A: The following is an overview of currently affected streets.

A: Work on this project began in November 2018 and is anticipated to be fully complete (including restoration) by spring 2021, although, the majority of work will be complete by late Fall 2020. Crews will get as much work done in 2020 as possible, once winter temperatures take hold, road and boulevard restoration work will stop until spring; however, underground work on infrastructure can continue in the winter. When warmer temperatures are consistent in 2021, crews will start permanent restoration work to complete the remaining road, sidewalk and sod restoration that is better suited to spring weather. Q: What if work on my street is not finished before the winter? A: Roads / streets that aren't permanently restored before the winter will be paved using temporary asphalt, they will be monitored to ensure good suitable ploughing operations for the winter. In the spring, these roads will then be paved with final restoration materials. Q: Who should I contact if I have a question or concern about construction on my street? A: The Basement Flooding Protection Program has designated Field Ambassadors on all projects who address any construction related questions or concerns from the public. For this specific project, there are three Field Ambassadors that can be reached by phone or email at 416-338-5497 or bfpp@toronto.ca. Please see names of the Field Ambassadors below:

· Janet Webster · Aleesha Harris · Kristan McLean
