News & Notices
The Town of Collingwood implemented the 2020 water and wastewater rates on July 1, 2020. An extensive rate-study was conducted by Hemson Consulting Ltd. to evaluate and gather the appropriate data to provide an updated rate structure that will support the needs of the community. Water and wastewater are self-funded utilities, meaning that they are non-tax supported operations. While it seems fresh water is plentiful in our municipality, we still must be financially and environmentally responsible water users and not take our freshwater asset - The Georgian Bay - for granted.
This is a reminder that drains (e.g. sinks and toilets) are not dumping grounds for garbage. Garbage often found in the Town’s sanitary system includes single-use wipes, paper towels, cleaning products, rubber gloves, diapers, feminine hygiene products, hazardous materials and food. These materials don’t break down like toilet paper and can cause damage to our wastewater infrastructure by clogging pipes and sewer mains, damaging pumps, and most importantly it puts operators at risk when they have to clean out and repair the damaged equipment.
Please take notice that there will be aquatic weed control measures taking place on Wednesday, July 8 in the Collingwood Harbour Launch Basin and the Yacht Club Basin.
