3. In an effort to minimize damage, the homeowner/business is requested to advise the City and contractor of
any underground automated sprinkler systems that may be affected by construction
4. Due to the nature of the proposed work, temporary disruption of water service should be anticipated. The
City will provide 48 hours advance notification of any scheduled watermain shutdown. Occasionally,
emergency watermain shutdowns can occur.
5. Driveway access may be restricted during localized construction activity. However, after the reconstruction of
your driveway approach (ramp), access will not be available for approximately five days to allow the concrete
to harden and to attain its strength.
6. All City boulevards (sod, asphalt, concrete, etc.) and private areas (driveways, walkways, curbs, retaining
walls, etc.) disturbed by the construction will be restored to a condition equal or better than pre-construction condition
7. To ensure your new lawn stays green, watering is very important for the first week. Setting up a sprinkler
for a maximum of one hour in a given area will be sufficient. Please ensure that all corners and edges of the
lawn are not missed. In the second week, taper off to every other day, or less, so long as you see the lawn
is maintaining its green colour. Cutting height should not be less than two inches (50mm) for the first
season. Please note that it is important to control weeds and fertilize the newly sodded areas as part of your
regular lawn care maintenance.
8. Garbage should be placed at the curb side on your regular pick-up day. Please print your address (in
waterproof marker) on all garbage/recycling containers.
