Public Notice Adoption of Water and Wastewater Bylaw
Please be advised that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Parry Sound adopted By-law 2015-6551, being a by-law to govern water and wastewater services in the Town of Parry Sound and to repeal by-laws 2012-6174 and 2007-5063. Updated Water and Waste Water Fees are available for 2016.
The Town looks after the water mains and service lines from the road to the property line only unless there is a registered easement crossing private property. You are responsible for the water line between your house and the property line. If you suspect a water leak at your home, please contact a plumber. Staff does not perform work on private property.
If you see water bubbling up on a street it could mean we have a water line break. Please call the Public Works Department (705-746-2101) immediately or if after hours please call 705-773-8207.
The water distribution system is flushed each spring and fall as part of our maintenance schedule. You may notice low or no water pressure. If your water appears cloudy, continue running your water until it runs clear. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Public Works Department.
The Town looks after the sewer mains and service lines from the road to the property line only unless there is a registered easement crossing private property. You are responsible for the sewer lateral between your house and the property line.
If you have water or sewage backing up in your drains, please call the Public Works Department (705-746-2101) or if after hours please call 705-773-8958. Staff will check the sewer main on the street to see if it is running free. If the main is not blocked you will be advised to call a plumber. Staff does not perform work on private property.
Culverts, ditches and gutters help to direct storm water and spring water run-off away from our roads and properties and into the catch basins. Sometimes these outlets will get plugged with debris such as dirt and leaves. Staff routinely check and clean them out especially before spring run-off occurs or before a predicted rain event.
If you see a plugged culvert, ditch or catch basin, please contact the Public Works Department or Report A Problem.
