Driveways and curb cuts

Locate a water valve on your driveway prior to paving, or request a curb cut by calling 519-886-2310 or TTY (for deaf) 1-866-786-3941 during business hours.

Paving your driveway

Some properties have water valves underneath the driveway. Before you pave or re-pave your driveway we will locate water valves for free. If your valve ever needs to be repaired this ensures we can do so with minimal damage to your driveway.

Curb cuts

As a resident you are not allowed to alter curbs and will be charged for doing so. Follow this process to request a curb cut:

  1. Call 519-886-2310 or TTY (for deaf) 1-866-786-3941 during business hours to book an inspection.
  2. Our inspector will come to your property to review. You do not have to be at home.
  3. If approved, the inspector will leave a permit for the property owner.
  4. Fill out the permit and submit in person at the Waterloo Service Centre.
  5. The cost is $130/permit and $120/metre for the curb cut. We accept cash, debit or cheque.
  6. The curb cut is arranged by the city. We work with a contractor to complete the work within two weeks of receiving payment.
