Affordability Policy

The Town of The Blue Mountains passed an Affordability Policy for Water and Wastewater Service Extensions in 2017.

This Policy established affordability criteria for water and wastewater service extensions in order to determine whether to proceed with water and/or wastewater service extension.

The cost of municipal servicing can be extensive. The Affordability Policy ensures that these service extensions are affordable for both the Town and benefitting property owners.

Each water and wastewater service extension project will continue to be assessed on a case-by-case basis and the viability and value of a project is determined by considering the necessary works, available funding sources, and the end cost to the benefiting property owners.
