Sewer Connections & Inspections

Sewer Connections

Each property must have its own service connection to the Town of White City's sewer system. 

The sewer connections shall be installed in accordance with the Town's Building Bylaw.

All sewer connections must be approved by authorized personnel and shall be constructed at the expense of the owner. Any fittings required to join the sewer system to the applicant's building shall be the owner's responsibility, unless the Municipality determines otherwise. 

No person shall connect to the sewer system or any part thereof, without a plumbing permit by a plumbing contractor. 

Sewer Inspections

48 hours' notice for sewage inspections must be given to the Manager of Public Works by email:

Please provide at least three days' notice for services installed during the winter months. 

The Manager of Public Works/Town Foreman will contact you by email or phone to confirm inspection. 

The depth of the service connection trench shall be sufficient to provide a minimum cover of 2.5 metres (8.2ft). If the depth at the front of the house doesn't meet the required cover, you will be asked to insulate until the cover meets 2.5 metres. (Please have appropriate insulation available - Polystyrene Foam Board Insulation to be Dow Styrofoam High-Load 40 Insulation or approved equal).   

These depth measurements shall be taken by a competent person and provided to Town inspector to be recorded. 

Please see the Sanitary Sewage Works Bylaw No. 584-14 which details general sanitary sewage works, connection services and rates/charges associated with these sewage requirements.
