Our Drinking Water Systems

The Markdale Drinking Water System consists of two groundwater well sites, one elevated standpipe and all the associated watermains, services and hydrants. This system provides potable water to all the residences, businesses, and industry with the Village.

The Village of Kimberley, Amik Subdivision, and Talisman Mountain Resort are all connected to create what is known as the Kimberley Amik Talisman Water System. The Water Treatment Facility, which is built at the top of the Amik Subdivision, processes raw water which is collected from two springs along the Niagra Escarpment. The raw water is filtered and chlorinated and stored in a reservoir with a capacity of 878 m³. Treated water is fed through the system by both a gravity main and a pressurized pumped main.

The Municipality of Grey Highlands is committed to provide a consistent safe supply of drinking water to our community. 

The Municipality has implemented a Quality Management System for the provision of safe drinking water that meets the requirements of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment’s Drinking Water Quality Management Standard.

An Operational Plan has been developed and is located at the Public Utilities office for the public to view, along with a Quality Management System Policy which is posted on our web site.

A Quality Management System establishes policies, procedures and objectives that allow the Municipality of Grey Highlands to direct and control its water distribution system with regard to quality.

Feel free to take our Water Quality Survey

The Municipality operates three sanitary sewer systems in Markdale, Flesherton, and the Amik Subdivision. The Markdale system consists of gravity sewer mains which feed into a two lagoon style treatment facility. Two lift stations on the east side of town help pump waste water out of the low lying subdivisions up to the gravity line. The Markdale lagoon has a seasonal discharge between March 1 to November 30.

In Flesherton, waste water is collected through a gravity sewer system and travels to a pumping station in a low lying part of the Village. From there, waste water is pumped to our Extended Aeration Treatment Facility on the north edge of town. At this site we can discharge on a year-round basis.

Our two lagoon system at the base of the Amik Subdivision treats waste water from both the Subdivision and Talisman Mountain Resort. All sanitary sewage is fed to the lagoon via gravity. Here we have a seasonal discharge between May 1 - September 31.
