The R.M. of Woodlands has contracted Jeffery’s Environmental Services Inc. to conduct the annual pump out of all septic tanks hooked in to the town low pressure sewage system. This process will be conducted beginning May 15, 2020 with completion by September 30, 2020. It is the responsibility of the resident to ensure the tank is accessible and free of obstructions. In addition, to ensure that your tank can be properly rinsed out, please run a connected garden hose out to your tank. Once the tank has been pumped out, you will receive a report from the operator and your hose can be put away. If you need to make arrangements for the contractor to access your tank, please phone the Municipal Office at 383-5679 to make these arrangements. If a second visit is required due to the failure of the resident to remove the obstruction, the cost will be the homeowners.
Your co-operation will ensure the process is completed in a timely and effective manner.
