Service Connection Fund
Effective April 1, 1998, the City of Weyburn implemented a service connection fee to cover the cost of maintenance or replacement of existing water and/or sewer service connection.
This fee, which is based on the size of your water service, will be charged on your water bill (e.g. residential house sizes usually vary from 1/2 inch to 1 inch and the cost for all water services up to and including 1 inch in size is $5.50 per month).
It is against the law to dump any type of contaminants into a storm sewer as it releases directly into the river system.
For more information, or if you have concerns with your existing sewer or water connection, please contact the Public Works department at (306) 848-3290.
