QUESTION: If I install a back flow valve, how and when do I get the grant money?

ANSWER: The process is as follows:

  1. You get a service number from Water/Waste Dept., (905-546-2489).
  2. Then you or your contractor (usually contractor) applies for a building permit.
  3. When your contractor has completed the work it is then inspected by the city.
  4. Then the resident applies for the grant of up to $2,000.00
There is some concern that once a resident has completed steps 1 through 3 that there might not be any grant money left and the resident would be left with the bill. Staff advised that there is still money left at this time in the grant account, but it is getting low. Staff advised that when the dollars were exhausted they would report that to Council. Councillor Johnson advised that when the account is drained, Council would normally approve additional dollars to fund the account again. The grant dollars are given out on a first come first serve basis and Councillor Johnson was confident that the account would be funded again.
