Water

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.

Hydrant Flushing

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.

Sanitary Sewers

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.

Storm Sewers

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 at 705-746-2101 or Report A Problem. After hour emergencies can be reported to 705-746-1404.
