The Municipal Sewers By-Law (#34) outlines the criteria for connections to Municipal sewers. Central sewer systems are located in Chester, Chester Acres, Chester Basin, Western Shore, Mill Cove and New Ross. If you are in an area serviced by a central sewer system, you need to complete an application. Please click the link below to our applications and forms to drop by the Public Works Office located at 151 King Street in Chester. Applications must be completed by the property owner and submitted to the Public Works Office for review and approval.
The property owner is responsible for all costs associated with the connection to the sewer main lines, and an area rate will be charged to the owner when the connection is complete.
To report back-up problems, line breaks or other sewer problems, please call the Public Works Department at 902-275-1312 or call 1-888-664-6998 after hours.
