Due to a backlog of applications for the Municipality's Wastewater Management Program (Septic System Program) the Municipality will not be accepting any new applications after Friday, February 4, 2022. We will reassess once the backlog is cleared. Please note that 2022 is the final year for the program.
The Municipality’s Wastewater Management Project aims to improve wastewater management through regulation of the design, construction, installation, use, maintenance and operation of wastewater systems in the interest of public health and safety and environmental protection.
Project participants receive an appropriately designed on-site sewage disposal system with a portion of the cost covered by federal, provincial and municipal funding. The Municipality operates and maintains the on-site sewage disposal systems of participants for a period of seven (7) years, subject to an operating and maintenance fee, after which time the full responsibility for the system shall be transferred to the Owner.
Fees for participation in the WWMD Project include:
*Fees may vary as noted in By-Law 62 Owner.

NOTE: Housing Nova Scotia has funding programs that can help eligible home owners with the cost of repairing or replacing malfunctioning on-site septic systems. Please contact your local office toll free at 1-844-424-5110 or visit https://housing.novascotia.ca
