Information for residents

Garbage and Recycling Collection

The Contractor is required to maintain the pickup of garbage bags, garbage containers and recycling boxes left at the curbside from abutting residential or commercial properties within the limits of construction.

This may include the picking up of bags, containers and recycling boxes and placing them at a location convenient for pick up by County contractor.  If this is required, empty garbage containers and recycling boxes shall be returned to the respective property owners on the same day.


Please clearly mark all containers and recycling boxes with your address so that they may be returned to the correct location.   All regularly scheduled garbage and recycling pickups shall be maintained regardless of whether the Contractor is working on that day.

Property Inspections

Terracon Underground Ltd. has contracted the services of OZA Inspections Ltd. to complete preconstruction surveys of the existing buildings adjacent to the project work area.  OZA Inspections Ltd. will be delivering notices arranging for these inspections.  These are important as they protect both you and the contractor if a claim for damages is made after construction.

Driveway Access and On-Street Parking

The contractor is required to maintain access to all homes during construction.  There will be occasions when you may experience some delays, lack of service and inconvenience. Every effort will be made by the contractor to minimize these occurrences as well as communicate when they are to occur.

We do ask that you refrain from parking on the street during construction activities as this can delay things and prolong the construction period

Sanitary Sewer Servicing

The replacement of the sanitary sewer is being completed as part of this project.  This will also will include the replacement of the sanitary services from the main sewer to one metre past your property lines.  You should experience no interruptions with your sanitary service during the project.

Watermain Servicing

The replacement of the watermain is being completed as part of the project. Your existing water service will be connected at the property line to a new service from the watermain.  The contractor will notify you of any interruptions to your water supply that will be required to complete this work.

The contractor may need to provide a temporary water system. In this case, the temporary watermain system will be installed and tested to the same standards of Norfolk County as permanent installations. The temporary distribution system will be connected to your existing service.  This temporary system will allow for the contractor to complete the project efficiently and safely while maintaining water supply to you.

Any disruption during the connection of your water service to the temporary system or to the new permanent system should be minimal.  There may need to be interruptions of longer duration to allow for the main line connections of the new system to the existing system.  You will be notified in advance of these interruptions and provided with some indication of the anticipated duration.


Storm Sewer Servicing

A new storm water collection system is being completed as part of this project to provide drainage for the new roadway.  Storm services to each property will not be provided by this system.


The existing sidewalk on the west side of Wellington Street for the length of the project area will be replaced at a standard width of 1.5m.

Curb & Gutter

New mountable (low back) curb & gutter will be installed on each side of the street for the length of the project.

Construction Staging

The proposed construction of Wellington Street has been planned with a staged approach to minimize the inconvenience to the area residents.

Stage 1

Stage 1 shall consist of the installation of all underground works and reinstatement of Wellington St. to granular base level from Alice St. to West Church St.

Stage 2

Stage 2 shall consist of the installation of all underground works and reinstatement of Wellington St. to granular base level from West Church St. to Brown St. West.  During the underground work in Stage 2, surface works, i.e.; curb, asphalt and sidewalks, shall proceed in Stage 1.

Lawn Sprinkler Systems

The installation of lawn sprinklers on municipal property is not allowed.  We ask that if you have an underground lawn sprinkler system that is on the municipal road allowance, that you please have these removed or marked prior to construction.  Norfolk County will not be responsible for any damage to lawn sprinkler system which are on Norfolk County property.

Tree Removals

With every construction project comes the removal of some trees for various reasons. Some are at the end of their life span, while others have water and sanitary services within the root areas that would be damaged by construction. Trees deemed to present a hazard or are in conflict with construction activities will be removed as part of this project. Norfolk County will evaluate the potential for appropriate tree planting opportunities after construction is complete.
