Wastewater and Storm Water Bylaw
The Wastewater and Storm Water Bylaw was established to regulate the collection and disposal of wastewater and storm water.
The drainage system is a network of drains, pipes and ponds designed to channel wastewater and storm water directly to the Regina Wastewater Treatment Plant. This system protects Wascana Creek and the Qu’Appelle River.
The drainage system is not to be used to dispose of soil, waste, animal waste, fecal matter, cooking oils, greases, gasoline, motor oil, transmission fluids, solvents, paint, cement, sawdust, yard waste, pesticides, biomedical waste, hazardous waste, soaps, odorous materials, detergents and water from hot tubs. Use a car wash to soap wash vehicles. Washing them on the road, your driveway or in the alley means the detergent enters the drainage system.
Weeping tile discharge is to be routed into the storm system. For more details, refer to sections 23 to 28 of this bylaw.
There are fines in place for individuals and/or corporations who do not comply to the regulations within the bylaw. Fines can reach up to $25,000.
