Williamsburg residents and businesses pay a flat fee (varies on type of business, number of residential units, etc).
The Operation Plan Manual is available at the South Dundas Municipal Office for public viewing.
The South Dundas Water Treatment Plant is a state of the art facility, using a membrane filtration system and granular activated carbon filters to eliminate odour and taste.
The facility provides service to both the Morrisburg and Iroquois and is designed to provide a capacity for a twenty year period. Each year South Dundas Public Works plans upgrades to the distribution system, subject to available funding.
The Municipality has developed a long term plan that includes analysis of the existing system and planned action to maintain, repair and replace pipes and appurtenances.
South Dundas water meets all provincial requirements under the provincial water regulations.
Morrisburg, Iroquois and Williamsburg each have their own Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Morrisburg’s secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant was commissioned in 2008 and includes a Septage Receiving Station; Iroquois’ Wastewater Treatment Plant was commissioned in 2014.
The Williamsburg Wastewater Treatment Facility is a lagoon system and is very effective.
There are few storm sewers in the Villages; rather, the Villages have been designed mostly with shallow ditches and swales in the street allowances to drain surface water.
