Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Town of Shelburne Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 9 Rose Island Lane just off the Sandy Point Road. The facility employs a technical operator who ensures that the proper treatment of waste and wastewater through the plant and its 12 sewage pump stations is done according to the Nova Scotia Department of Environment.

Owners of residential properties and businesses are encouraged to review the by-law as strict limits are included for certain substances which are considered detrimental to the operation of a wastewater collection and treatment plant.

If you require sewer services to an undeveloped lot or property in the Town of Shelburne, please contact Mike Turney, the Manager of Public Works or Margaret Ruiz for information. An application is required before obtaining any services.
