  • Drainage, in accordance with the Ontario Drainage Act, is to oversee the maintenance and construction of all municipal drains throughout the municipality.
  • A municipal drain is simply a drainage system that channels water off of agricultural land or removes excess water that collects on properties. 

If you are a landowner and have concerns with excess water on your property or need to improve the drainage on your agricultural land, you should contact the Drainage Superintendent.
