The municipality adopted a bylaw to control the maintenance and regular emptying of septic tanks. Every two years, tenders for the contract to pump out residential septic tanks is awarded to the lowest bidder. Click here to view the bylaw.
Every 2 years, operation starts in September and the emptying of septic tanks end before the end of November. A written notice is provided to residents approximately two weeks before the 5-day period during which the tenderer will carry out the work, so owners can ensure that their septic system is accessible. Although there is no charge for the drain, there could be additional costs if the contractor is unable to access the septic tank.
