Type of Water Service
Currently the County operates a high-pressure system provided there is sufficient capacity to provide the additional rate of flow without affecting the service levels of other customers.
Residents considered adjacent of an installed water line, may submit a Water Modelling Application and relevant fee to the County. If the water model returns that the connection is viable for your property, you may continue the process of applying for a service connection.
There are eleven connection points on the SMRWSC waterline that can be used by County residents at various road allowances. Because the nature of the SMRWSC system is to deliver water to reservoirs when needed, and there will be times when the system is pumping water, all residences connected to the line must have either a private cistern or a rural water reservoir for water storage.
The costs for installation of the service connection is the responsibility of the landowner and must be done in accordance with County standards.
Hamlets in the County with water service do not require a water model verification. On unserviced lots, any new development or redevelopment will be required to obtain a Service Connection.
