Construction on Thorndale Crescent

The City of Hamilton has passed a by-law that requires all commercial, institutional and industrial properties to install back-flow preventers downstream of their City Water meters. The purpose of this bylaw is to limit the unlikely possibility of pressure differentials in the system.

One of these locations is a water main situated at 64 Thorndale Crescent that supplies part of  McMaster University.

Please be advised the University has contracted Demik Construction to complete this work. The plan involves excavating an area at that site and constructing an underground concrete chamber that will be buried once complete. Demik plans to start excavation on Monday September 10, 2012 and the work is expected to take approximately four weeks, weather permitting.  The construction area will be enclosed with temporary fencing. You can expect to see piles of earth during the excavation. Excess earth will be trucked off site and there will be concrete trucks delivering cement at various times during the construction period. There will be some noise associated with construction equipment during working hours, (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) on weekdays. Should weather cause delays work may be required on Saturday and you will be notified should that be the case.

We sincerely hope this work will not inconvenience you and should you need to contact us, please Call Stuart Young at (905) 525-9140 extension 26125.

Thank-you in advance for your understanding as we meet compliance to the City By-law.
