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) – $309 annually, (commercial) – variable – see Bylaw 223, 2019
  • Sewage (residential) – $190 annually, (commercial) – variable – see Bylaw 223, 2019

For new water/sewer service infrastructure connection to the municipal system:

Recycling – no service/fee. Local drop-off bins for cardboard, glass, plastic. Bottles/cans and end-of-life electronics go to the Bottle Depot in Invermere (40 km north). Other working-order household items can be recycled at Re-Use-It Centre (Columbia Valley Landfill 30 km N).
