Sewer-use By-law

The Sewer-use By-law protects the sewer infrastructure, which includes the sewer lines, sewage pump-stations and wastewater treatment plants.

Discharges in excess of the by-law may damage the sewer infrastructure and create treatment problems at the wastewater plants.

Discharges that impact the treatment plant processes may result in odd discharges to the receiving water bodies that could have an impact on the environment.


  • Batch discharge permit - $156
