The District of Stewart is a member of the Regional District Solid Waste Management Plan. This Plan is a new approach that will help make waste management safer and more cost efficient by sharing resources. All communities will contribute to the plan based on their population. This means that Stewart’s taxpayers will contribute approximately 7% of the cost.
You will be receiving an informational flyer in your mailbox that provides more information. We encourage you to read the flyer and be informed about the changes that will be taking place with the closure of our landfill and the construction of a transfer station.
Community meetings will be arranged in the coming months so that you can provide your input into this process.
If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
Jennifer Larson, CPA, CGA
Chief Financial Officer

Please be advised that the District of Stewart has now switched back from Well #3 to Well #4
POSTED: February 23, 2017
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 (rolling 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.
