Nobleton Groundwater Well Construction Update
Construction continues on the new groundwater production well at 14 Royal Avenue in the community of Nobleton. The new groundwater production well #7 will replace existing production well #3 and provide system redundancy.
Construction of the new groundwater production well #7 is expected to be completed by fall 2022.
There is a short-term lane restriction on Royal Avenue during construction. Traffic flag persons are on-site, as needed, to help with the movement of traffic.
Access to all homes will be maintained and there are no planned impacts to your water or wastewater services.
Temporary bypass piping has also been installed on the roadside and ditch to help with draining water from the production well.
Thank you for your patience while we complete this vital work. Visit york.ca/waterconstruction for more information about water and wastewater construction projects.

This summer, be water smart.
Water is part of everything we do; showering, staying hydrated while exercising, washing our hands, watering our gardens and so much more! Every day, York Region collects, treats and stores more than 325 million litres of drinking water. Generally, York Region’s water is
supplied by groundwater production wells and Lake Ontario water, which is blended in reservoirs, water towers and distribution pipes.
The community of Nobleton’s water comes primarily from groundwater, which is an underground water supply found in soil and rock crevices — and it recharges indefinitely, if the water usage does not exceed the natural recharge rate. By using less water, it saves you money, protects our environment and ensures the community of Nobleton has enough water for daily use and emergencies.
This summer, commit to minimizing your water use by:
- Following the Township of King’s Outdoor Water-Use Bylaw
- Running dishwashers and washing machines with full loads
- Sweeping driveways and walkways instead of washing with a hose
- Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth
- Using a rain barrel to collect water for your plants
- Finding and repairing water leaks
