As per the bylaw, new customers will be required to submit a written application form instead of a verbal request to get the Water Service Connection Permit to connect to the City’s drinking water system. To get the Permit, please complete the online application form provided below and submit to the City.

There is no fee to process the application form. However there are fees for services such as inspection of the water service installed, water meter supplied by the City, water account set up etc., which are usually applied to the customers first water bill.
