The new South St. Andrews Wastewater Project will improve quality of life in our municipality for generations to come.

Permanent wastewater infrastructure addresses longstanding health and environmental concerns caused by failing septic fields. Instead of persistent challenges related to odour and surface water contamination, residents will have peace of mind knowing that our water, air and soil is protected. 

The South St. Andrews Wastewater Project is an investment in the long-term health and well-being of our community. A new permanent sewer will increase local property values. It will protect our lake. Most importantly, it will ensure South St. Andrews will always be a great place to call home.

The RM is committed to keeping residents fully informed at each stage as this important project moves ahead.

This special website was created to ensure that the most up-to-date information on the South St. Andrews Wastewater Project is always just a click away. The RM will also continue to share updates via community newsletters, letters to residents in the project area, and through email updates. You can sign up to receive email updates using the CodeRED notification system. As well, there will be public hearings scheduled as the project moves forward, which are an opportunity for residents to participate in person. 

Both the “important updates” and FAQ sections of this website will be continually updated as the project proceeds and as the RM continues to receive questions and feedback from the public. 

If you have questions that have not been addressed in the material available on this website, we invite you to contact the RM directly, either at or by phoning the RM office. We’ll do our best to respond within a timely manner. 

Thank you for our interest in this important project for South St. Andrews!
