The Enviro-Save Program is in place to assist in the removal of water inflowing or infiltrating into the sanitary sewer system from private property. The City's Sewer Use By-law was incorporated into our Municipal Code under Chapter 1047, Sewage- Discharge, which prohibits the discharge of storm water and water from drainage of roofs or land into the sanitary sewer system. This program is now administered through the Environmental Services Department.

The process for implementing inspections for Classes 1 and 2 will be as follows: Upon receipt of the completed Enviro -Save form, and two (2) cheques for each, the files are checked to see if an inspection is needed. If our files show that an inspection is not warranted, the City will return (1) cheque. In the event that an inspection is warranted, the City will retain both cheques as payment for inspection. The City will call the contact phone number and schedule an inspection. Upon completion, the applicant will be issued a written inspection report of our findings. Class 3 is still subject to Council Approval.
