Sewage System & Building Permits
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) delegated Algoma Public Health to enforce the provisions of the Building Code Act as they relate to sewage systems. The Code and Guide for Sewage Systems governs the design, construction, operation and maintenance of various classifications of sewage systems located within properties. It only addresses sewage systems up to 10, 000 litres capacity serving one lot.
If you would like to learn more please call the Environmental Health team at 705-759-5286.
Systems larger than 10, 000 litres per day and off-lot (communal) sewage systems are regulated under the Ontario Water Resources Act. Approvals are issued by the Ministry of the Environment & Climate Change (MOECC).
