Maintenance of the Water and Sanitary Sewers is completed under contract by the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA).
The Town of South Bruce Peninsula currently has several water systems:
and one Sanitary Sewer/Wastewater Treatment System in Wiarton.
Frozen Water Update: April 28, 2015 - The Public Works Department advises that the residents who were asked to run their water in 2015 to prevent frozen lines, can discontinue running their water effective April 28, 2015. The temperature has warmed up, the majority of the services that were frozen have thawed, and the frost has moved out of the ground. This includes residents of Berford Street, Gould Street, Division Street, Taylor Street, and William Street, as well as several other residents in the Town that the Public Works Department had instructed to run their water.
