Rural Water and Sewer Servicing

Rural Water and Sewer Servicing (RWSS) will upgrade the water, sewer and road infrastructure in the communities of Anzac, Conklin, Draper, Janvier, Gregoire Lake Estates and Saprae Creek Estates. 

On-Site Service Connection Plan

A plan for residential on-site service connections is being prepared to be presented to Council for approval later in 2019. This will allow Administration to address the main questions arising at the October 2018 community engagements. As per the November 27, 2018 Council Report, in the proposed plan Administration is preparing to address the following elements:

  • The Municipality fund the entire installation of on-site service connections from lot lines to residential homes for existing residents served by the new system
  • The funding program be available to existing residents for a five-year period
  • Residents who are served by the new RWSS system be required to hire their own certified contractor to complete the on-site service connection
  • Existing residents served by the new Rural Water and Sewer Servicing system be asked for $16,000 ($10,000 in Saprae Creek) as service connection fee
  • A long-term payment option for the service connection fee

Please note: All timelines are tentative and could change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
