Connecting to Water and Sewer
Steps to Install Municipal Water or Sanitary from Property Line to a Residence
Once the water main or sanitary service is in place at the property line and confirmed live by InnServices you will be able to obtain a Town building permit for connection. This is an easy process with a few steps:
- Visit the Town of Innisfil’s website to learn more about the building permit application process, fees, and related inspections.
- Municipal water piping, water meter, and if required a pressure relief valve, are required to be installed under Town By-laws and to Town Engineering Standards. All fixtures inside the home will be required to be connected to the municipal water supply. Should you have an existing well which you would like to maintain for other uses, the province requires that it must be disconnected from any water lines already connected to the municipal water. Once the municipal water line is connected to the home please contact InnServices to arrange for the installation of the water meter.
- Municipal sanitary piping is required to be installed under Town bylaws and to Town Engineering Standards. All sanitary drainage inside the home will be required to be connected to the municipal sanitary sewer and private septic system disconnected from the home. The private septic system will need to be abandoned as per municipal and provincial requirements.
Installing a new municipal service requires an open excavation by a contractor from the property line to the house and some internal house plumbing.
