May 15, 2024

The seasonal 1” bulk water stations in Picton (15 MacSteven Drive) and Wellington (111 Belleville Street) will return to service on Friday, May 17 for use during the summer of 2024. Due to unexpected delays, the Carrying Place (21651 Loyalist Parkway) 1″ bulk water station will be returned to service on Friday, May 24.

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. 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 by-law 233-2021, is $4.13 per cubic meter (1,000L). Units are coin operated. The Picton and Carrying Place bulk water stations only accept loonies for payment. Other coins can be used in the Wellington bulk water station. Change is not available on site.
  • The 3” bulk water supply station in Picton (15 MacSteven Drive) continues to be available to approved larger-volume haulers.
  • The 3″ bulk water supply station in Wellington will be relocated from the current location on Beach Street to the Wellington and District Community Centre (111 Belleville Street).
  • An interruption to service will take place on Friday, May 17 between 8 am and 4 pm at the Wellington Bulk Water Station while infrastructure is relocated. During this time the 3″ Wellington Bulk Water Station will be unavailable for any bulk water loading.
  • Approved haulers requiring service during this time are asked to use the 3″ Picton Bulk Loading Station located at 15 MacSteven Drive.
  • The 3″ bulk water filling station in Wellington will be returned to service at approximately 5pm on Friday, May 17 at the Wellington and District Community Centre.
  • The relocated 3″ bulk water filing station will operate in the same manner as the Beach Street station, requiring approved haulers to use a key FOB and switch to activate the filling station.
  • All vehicles wishing to access the Wellington bulk loading stations will enter at the south driveway entrance and exit from the north driveway at Wellington and District Community Centre. Users wishing to use the 1″ bulk station will follow the route outlined by the small arrows, while those wishing to use the 3″ bulk station will follow the route outlined by the large arrows.
  • A map of the new location and loading route can be found below:
