Water and sewer service re-use is only available for construction of a new residential home and is subject to City inspection and approval. A non-refundable fee applies.
If the existing service connection does not meet the re-use criteria, property owners must apply and pay for a new service connection.
The re-use fee for water service connections is based on the cost to conduct a site inspection to operate the curb box and a search of historical maintenance records. See the current fee.
There is an inspection fee for the re-use of any residential sanitary sewer service connection up to 150 mm in diameter. The fee is based on contracted rate for a closed circuit TV (CCTV) inspection of the connection, plus staff time to carry out a maintenance history search and to review the CCTV report.
