Water and sewer emergencies

Do you have a water or sewer emergency? Call Jacobs at (888) 399-1643 for help. 

Hydrant flushing

Jacobs carries out hydrant flushing quarterly.

Residents may experience temporary low water pressure and/or cloudy but harmless discolouration of the water.  Should discolouration occur, running a cold water tap for a short period will typically restore water conditions to normal.  Where practical, residents should avoid washing laundry during operational hours as to do so could result in discolouration of clothing.

Water rates

Water rates are based on a per cubic meter usage and a monthly base charge. All utility accounts are billed bi-monthly.

As per By-law 2021-19, the 2021 per cubic meter rate for water is $0.9909.

Sewage treatment

All of our sewer systems are in compliance with regulations mandated by the Ministry of the Environment and we meet or exceed all Provincial Standards. We undergo annual inspections of our system and plants to ensure compliance with our Certificate of Approvals.

Property owners are responsible for the portion of the sanitary lateral from the property line to the house or business.

Our sewer treatment plants are located at 4043 Aberarder Line and in the Village of Wyoming.

Sewer rates

All sewer rates are based on the amount of water used plus a monthly base charge based on the size of water meter installed. All accounts are billed on a quarterly basis on your water bill.

As per By-law 2021-19, the 2021 per cubic meter rate for sewer is $1.1171.
