Appearing as a Council Delegation

Citizen involvement in local government is an essential part of the democratic process and there are many ways in which you can voice your concerns and become involved.

Regular meetings of Council are open to the public and are held at 7:00 pm on the second and fourth Monday of the month (excluding Statutory Holidays) in the Town Hall Council Chamber. The schedule may be subject to change throughout the year. View the current Council Meeting Schedule.

At each regular Council meeting, Council hears from citizens or other parties who have concerns about issues affecting the District of Stewart. To appear before Council, you must submit a request in writing to the CAO by 1:00pm on the Thursday prior to the Council meeting at which you wish to appear. If there is no available time slot, a staff member of the CAO will contact you to make alternate arrangements for your request.

Lately the District of Stewart has issued few times a boil water advisory.  It's strictly a precautionary measure due power outage. Without power  water pressure at our pump declined below established level. A loss in pressure can result in contamination entering the drinking water distribution system from surrounding soil and groundwater (to read more click heading)

Water Quality Advisory:  UPDATE

POSTED: July 18, 2017

The District is aware that parts of town are experiencing murky or discolored water and are working to resolve this.Public Works crews are flushing the water mains in all neighborhoods today so you may notice some discoloration throughout the day.

It is recommended that residents let the water taps run to flush household water lines.

The Water Quality Advisory from February 2017 is still in effect, and is below for your convenience:

The District of Stewart received water sample results today from the lab and there is no bacteriological contamination. The water continues to be safe to drink. However, due to ongoing construction and maintenance work in and around the wells, the District has decided to keep a Water Quality Advisory in place. The Water Quality Advisory is the lowest-level notification and is used in situations where the public health threat is modest, and actions can be taken to reduce the risks. If you are a member of a high risk population, or you have concerns, you may choose to boil the water (roiling boil for one minute). Sampling will continue to be conducted periodically to assess the condition of the water. We will advise further if there is any change.
