Terms of reference (draft)

 

From the Municipality of Cumberland County:

We  apologize for the delay in providing information regarding the Pugwash Water Project. We understand this has been a point of concern for many residents and will endeavour to be more timely in providing updates on this project from this point forwards and on a more consistent basis.

We also want to assure you that staff, consultants and contractors are working diligently to complete the commissioning of the system that will provide residents with a safe and reliable water source.

At this point we are currently working on the Project Commissioning which is the process of assuring that all systems and components of the system are designed, installed, tested, operated and maintained according to operational requirements. We are experiencing an issue with the level of aeration of the water. Staff, consultants and contractors are working extended hours to remedy the situation.

We would like to thank those users who have installed their connections are ready to receive water and also thank everyone for their patience as we continue the Commissioning.

Justin Waugh-Cress, Director of Operations and Engineering


Connections to the new Pugwash

Water Supply System

now available
19th September 2018

(from the Municipal website)

Disconnection of a current water source cannot be completed until the following is complete:

  • Lateral connection made by contractor
  • Water Contract signed
  • Inspection of inside connection
  • Inspection of the curb stop connection point
  • Pugwash Central Water Supply is fully operational

Arrangements to make a connection from the water supply to a home or a business (also called a lateral connection or a curb stop connection) must be made by the homeowner or business owner with a private contractor. A list of contractors known to the county can be found here. Costs associated with connection are the responsibility of the homeowner or businessowner.

Water meters are unavailable until such time that the system is fully operational, expected early October. Specifications for installation are available here

Arrangements for inspection, or further questions can be made with Peter Cottingham at 902-694-0796

The Pugwash Water System Project is defined under By-Law 18-01, Local Improvement By-Law
