2023 Sewer Flushing Program

The 2023 Sewer Flushing Program will begin on Tuesday, October 10, 2023 and continuing until approximately Friday, October 20, 2023.


Important notice to all residential and commercial properties connected to the Town sewer system:

Do not allow grease or wipes to be flushed into the sewer system. It causes tremendous and unnecessary cost to residential, commercial, and municipal budgets. Grease and wipes that get deposited into the sewer system could cause a sewer backup on your property or your neighbours. This can increase insurance premiums and utility rates to pay for the damage and increase maintenance costs.
