- Date you want the water service turned on
Meter deposits may be made in the following ways:
In person at the office by cheque, cash or debit/credit.
Water service will not be in place if the above requirements are not met. Water service can only be turned on if someone is at the house. For new homes requiring a meter install, please contact the Town Office for a water and sewer line to be installed.
