Service Connection Application
In accordance with Utility Bylaw 1344-22 Section (6) The Municipal District of Pincher Creek No. 9 (the “MD”) has adopted Utility Services Guidelines (“USG”) to provide clarity and guidance around procedures and requirements owners must comply with during installation of Private Water & Wastewater Lines and prior to activation, specifically within the Hamlet of Beaver Mines.
The USG's are intended to provide minimum acceptable procedures, requirements, specifications and standards to follow design and install of water and sewer on private properties within The MD of Pincher Creek (MD) when connecting to the municipal Utility Service Water and Wastewater Systems. Service Connections are required to follow and adhere to these guidelines as the acceptable minimum standard.
Any work completed on private property by the owners and their contractors are the sole responsibility of the property owner. They are to apply sound design principles and industry best practices to provide an end product that is practical, economical, efficient, safe, and sustainable.
Bylaw 1344-22 (Utility Bylaw), and its successors regulate and provide for terms, conditions, rates, and charges for the supply and use of Water and Wastewater Services. Where conflicts exist between these guidelines and the Utility Bylaw, the Utility Bylaw shall prevail.
Owners must not connect to the curbstops and stubbed sewer connection until the treatment system is able to take flows. The MD will issue an exact date when it is ready to allow final connection to the system. Only the MD and its representatives may turn water curbstops.
