Minimum Charge for Bulk Water Fills

Category: News & Notices

Please be advised that the Town of Yarmouth Water Utility has introduced a minimum charge of $5 for bulk water fills at the self-serve water station located at the corner of Forest Street and Industry Avenue.

The minimum charge is intended to discourage the use of the bulk water station to fill containers smaller than 100 litres. When used to fill small containers, the water wasted exceeds the amount captured for consumption. In order to ensure water conservation, this activity must not continue and needs to be actively discouraged.

Please remember that the station was designed and built to dispense bulk water in large quantities, not for filling small containers for the purpose of drinking water. Please fill small water containers at local retailers, or through other means. Thank you for your cooperation.
