DURHAM: On July 1st, 2022, Durham Region made changes to the Sewer User Rate By-law #90-2003 regarding the limit of responsibility for repairs on private property related to sanitary sewer service connections.
However, on September 28th, 2022, Regional Council repealed the Sewer User Rate By-Law changes. Durham Region has established a Reimbursement Program for homeowners who completed sanitary sewer service connection repairs on private property (up to one metre from outside the house foundation) on or after July 1st, 2022.
