This page connects you to the latest news and information about the new utility. We look forward to keeping you informed and hearing your views.
The R.M. of St. Andrews is establishing a new utility to provide wastewater services to about 1,800 homes south of PTH 67. The first phase of the system should be ready to use by the end of 2020, which means we have a few crucial decisions to make in the coming months. Preparations are underway to finalize our service agreements, engage property owners to develop a fair utility rate and find ways to make it easy to get hooked into the new system.
As we near the end of this challenging project, the RM is committed to seeking public input and providing clear information. This is an important project for our community. It has been a long time in the making and there have been difficulties along the way. During these crucial final stages, we want to ensure all residents feel informed and heard. We are listening to your concerns and taking them seriously.
