Overnight Watermain Investigations Near Avenue Road (via Metrolinx)


What Work is Happening?

Testing will be done in 1-2 metre intervals using acoustical equipment called Electronic Ground Microphones and Acoustic Signal Level Meters (see photo below). These pieces of equipment will be visible to the public during testing, but they do not emit noise.

A small traffic control set up and a Paid Duty Officer will be on site as crews move from area to area along testing the required areas.
