Septic Re-inspection Program

The Program

The Town has implemented a septic re-inspection program.  We have contracted with Genivar (now WSP) to implement the program.

In accordance with the provisions of the by-law, the municipality has been broken up into alphabetical areas.  Beginning in 2013, Genivar has been working their way around the municipality in alphabetical geographic order. 

You will receive an information package in the year in which your septic system is to be inspected.  While this is a mandatory program, those who have had components of their septic system replaced under Building Permit will be exempt from re-inspection for a period of five years from the installation year.

Council thanks all residents for their cooperation in participating in this program.  The Septic Re-Inspection Program is a proactive program which promotes health and safety for residents and the environment.

The contract with WSP was completed at the end of 2016.  Staff will complete any inspections not performed by WSP.
