Public Works

Town Superintendent

The town Superintendent is in charge of the Public Works Department, which presently has 3 employees, and some private contractors. During the summer season the workforce increases due to our ‘Summer Student’ program which allows students to work and assist in the Public Works department.

Public Works is responsible for the maintenance of all Municipal buildings (which includes the Community Hall, Library, Bowling Alley, Arena, Beach, Clinic, Township Office, Fire Hall, Warehouse, to name just a few), water and sewer operations, hockey arena ice-making and operation of the arena, vehicle maintenance, mowing of grass, snow removal, roads maintenance, campgrounds maintenance, and many other duties too numerous to list.

Chief Building Officer

The Chief Building Officer, who presently works part-time, is responsible for all building permits and building inspections. For inquiries about the Chief Building Officer please feel free to contact:

Email: cbo@picklelake.org

Without the Public Works Department our community would not be the same, and we thank them for their hard work!

Water & Sewer

Water & 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 requires more intensive testing of our water to ensure its 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 Operations Manager, Leonard Wavy and has four full time employees who are on call 24/7.

Water & Sewer Fees

Water: $153.13/quarter plus infrastructure charge: $6.00
Sewage: $147.19/quarter plus infrastructure charge: $6.00


TOTAL: $312.32/quarter

Both quarterly bills are combined and mailed twice a year to those on the Township’s water and sewer lines.
