Richmond Hill North Reservoir Upgrade in the City of Vaughan
The Regional Municipality of York will be working in your community upgrading the Richmond Hill North Reservoir located at 11200 Bathurst Street in the City of Vaughan. The work includes upgrading the two underground reservoir cells, constructing a new access house, making improvements to the valve house, installing a new fence, removing the current access road, and constructing a new access road with gate. These upgrades will extend the life of the facility and enhance the security and health and safety surrounding the reservoir.
When: February 2022 to March 2023
What Can You Expect?
- All the work will happen within the Richmond Hill North Reservoir property
- Some trees along the current access road need to be removed; tree removal will be done before the bird nesting season and when the construction work is complete, replacement trees and shrubs that are native to the area will be planted
- There will be increased construction-related traffic in and out of the site; staff will be onsite to help with the movement of traffic, as needed
- There will be construction-related noise and dust from the trucks and equipment on site, though every effort to minimize this will be made
- Access to all homes will be maintained and there is no impact to your water or wastewater services
Thank you for your patience while we complete this vital work. As with all construction projects, some work may be re-scheduled due to weather or other conditions. Visit york.ca/waterconstruction for more information about water and wastewater construction projects.
