Septic Reinspection Program

Township Council through consultation with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and the Planning Advisory Committee had previously adopted a schedule to guide the Septic Reinspection Program in the years 2007-2015 through a voluntary approach. This schedule was intended to ensure that all lakes were inspected in the Township while ensuring that the inspections can be accomplished in an efficient and cost effective manner.

In order to facilitate this program all lakes in the Township have been divided into Primary, Secondary and Undeveloped Lakes as follows:

Primary Lake Secondary Lake Undeveloped Lake
Big Rideau Lake Little Crosby Lake Crowe Lake (South Crosby)
Upper Rideau Lake Westport Sand Lake Hart Lake (South Crosby)
Lower Rideau Lake Bellamy Lake Grady Lake (North Crosby)
Crosby Lake Troy Lake Spectacle Lake (North Crosby)
Wolfe Lake Pike Lake Tommy Lake (North Crosby)
Lower Beverley Lake Mill Pond Canton Lake (South Burgess)
Upper Beverley Lake   Little Lake (South Crosby)
Bass Lake   Mud Lake (South Crosby)
Otter Lake    
Newboro/Loon Lake    
Whitefish Lake    
Sand Lake    
Opinicon Lake    
Benson/Mosquito Lake

In 2015, for 2016 and onwards, Township Council implemented a hybrid approach to the septic program which includes 100 mandatory inspections and up to 50 voluntary inspections annually.  The mandatory program is completed by the Mississippi Rideau Septic System Office and the voluntary program is completed by the Development Services Department at the Township.  The lakes chosen to participate through this program will be added by Council Resolution annually.
