Water & Sewer

Connecting Water & Sewer

Single family dwellings do NOT require a water meter in the City of Summerside.

For residential installations, work inside the property line is the responsibility of the property owner. Cost of bringing service to the property line from the City’s main lines is the responsibility of the property owner or the City, depending on the specific area you’re building in. Contact us at 902.432.1262 to determine which your situation may be.

The first turn on after construction must be scheduled through us at 902-432-1230. Notice required is two working days to book water turn on.
