MBWD Water Quality Committee

MBWD has approved the decision to proceed with the disbandment of the Water Quality Committee as per the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing procedures. Independent monitoring processes are in place rendering this committee redundant.

The Water Quality Committee was initially established for development approval many years ago. Since then, MBWD has developed a very strict monitoring programme of our drinking water quality. 

To disband this committee, MBWD must remove the mandate from our Letters Patent. To do this, we are required to inform all landowners in the District of our intentions.  Each landowner may submit any objection, in writing to the District office, by March 31, 2020.

This disbandment of the Water Quality Committee in no way affects the quality of MBWD’s drinking water.

MBWD Parcel Tax 2021 Changes

February 10, 2020

Mill Bay Waterworks District has reviewed the way that it calculates Parcel Tax and wanted to let you know about some changes we will be making in 2021.

Parcel Tax is collected to fund the renewal of our system as it ages. Currently, Parcel Tax is a flat-rate amount based on the category of parcel – residential, commercial etc. This flat rate arrangement does not consider the amount of infrastructure that needs to be maintained to support the development on the parcel.
