May 16, 2022

The seasonal 1” bulk water stations in Picton (15 MacSteven Drive) and Wellington (111 Belleville Street) will be returned to service on Thursday, May 19, for use during the summer of 2022. There will also be changes to the 3″ bulk water station in Wellington.

  • At the bulk water filling stations, coin-operated 1” bulk water supply connections will be available for use effective Friday, May 20. Those wishing to use the filling stations must supply a clean connecting hose of at least 15 feet in length with a 1” female CamLock fitting.
  • Instructions for operation of the equipment are posted at each location. Users are reminded that the bulk filling stations are not intended for filling small water storage containers (e.g. 20L jugs, etc.).
  • The current bulk water rate, as per bylaw 4018-2017, is $4.13 per cubic meter (1,000L). Units are coin operated. The Picton bulk water station only accepts loonies for payment. Other coins can be used in the Wellington bulk water station.

  • The 3″ bulk water filling station in Wellington will be returned to service on Friday, May 20 at the Wellington and District Community Centre.
