This work will be ongoing for approximately four (4) weeks, and is scheduled to be complete by mid-April.

Notice of Sewer Line Connections on IR #4

We are excited to announce that the sewer line connections have begun at IR#4.

Sewer lines will become connected from the main sewer line from the road to where your plumbing connects to your septic tank. The Septic Tanks will be decommissioned and the area that will be disturbed will be brought back to the current condition or better.

Your plumbing (toilets, shower/bath, sinks) will not be able to be used during the changeover in the system. An SFN representative will come door to door to explain to each household the reconnections.
