Sewer Consolidation Web Icon

 

On January 23, 2024, Council approved the consolidation of the West Hants and Windsor Sewer Systems.  Sewer systems are governed by Council, and staff are in the process of consolidating the two by-laws.  This decision was based on a sewer rate study prepared and presented by consultants.

Sewer rate changes were approved for 2024-25 through to 2026-27. The last changes for sewer rates in both West Hants and Windsor occurred on April 1, 2021. As outlined in the rate study, consolidation offers customers better rates long-term than if the two sewer systems continued operating independently.

Consolidated rates came into effect on April 1, 2024, for all municipal sewer system customers. Look for an insert included with the April utility bills. The new rates will be reflected on utility bills mailed out in July.
