Water / Sewer

The Water and Sewage Treatment Plant

In light of the recent changes brought on by the incident at Walkerton, Ontario, major adjustments have been made. More stringent regulations have been imposed and new practices have been adopted. Upgrades to our system have been applied to ensure that there is no chance of contamination of the water supply. The new Drinking Water Regulation required more intensive testing of our water to ensure the purity.

The Township water source is a drilled well that is 89 feet deep and the water tower holds 220,000 gallons of water. Chlorination of the water supply is required, to prevent contamination but does not alter the taste of the drinking water.

Our sewage treatment plant is a modern facility that utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and passes the Provincial inspections. In addition to the modern equipment, our plant always ensures that the emission of treated water is safe and does not contaminate our river waters.

This department is under the supervision of the Town Superintendent, Wayne Morrison and has one two full time employees who are on call 24/7.

Water and Sewer Fees are as follows:
Water rate: $136.10/quarter
Sewage rate: $136.10/quarter
Total rate combined: $272.20/quarter
Both quarterly bills are combined and mailed twice a year to those on the Township’s water and sewer lines.
