Water and Sewer
Most properties in the Village are connected to a municipal water and sewer system. The Village is working to connect all properties to the municipal system as development occurs. Canal Flats is famous for the quality of its water – fresh from the mountains to the east.
Municipal Rates (2020):
- Water (residential) – $321 annually, (commercial) – variable – see Bylaw 223, 2019
