Did you know? How to properly direct storm and ground water from your property

 Things to Remember 

  • Protecting our environment from contamination and pollution is everyone’s responsibility. 

  • West Nipissing’s wastewater systems are currently affected by high volumes of water.

  • Your sump pump should be turned ON to gather storm and ground water, and redirect it to your yard or ditch.

  • Directing storm and ground water from your property to the sanitary collection system can have a negative impact on the municipal wastewater system and on the environment.

  • Connecting sump pumps or weeping tiles to the sanitary system is prohibited under the Environmental Protection Act and Municipal By-Law (2000/05).
