Council of the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth has recently developed and passed a Water Supply Upgrade Lending Program By-law. The Municipality recognizes that climate change is beginning to affect us all in many ways; a recent manifestation of this has been extremely dry conditions during the summer months which in turn has created unprecedented well water supply issues for some or our residents. To try to assist with this, Council has developed this financial tool. It is designed to help those in most need by making available financing, with certain conditions, directly through the Municipality of Yarmouth, that can be used to remediate their well water supply situation.
Please go to the following link to review the by-law and learn about the conditions, details, application process and more on how the Water Supply Upgrade Lending Program works. The application form for the program is available at the following link: Fillable Application Form
Council of the Municipality is acutely aware of the growing climate change phenomena and will continue to pro-actively develop tools and mitigation strategies aimed at protecting our region and our residents as we learn more about how it is impacting us.
