Communal Tile Beds and Wastewater (Skyline Horseshoe Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant)

​Only select private residences in Horseshoe Valley are serviced by the Municipal communal tile fields. Many (but not all) residences connected to these systems are equipped with a septic tank (i.e. holding tank), which provides the first level of sewage treatment. 

Presently, the Municipality does not own or operate the Horseshoe Valley wastewater collection system and treatment plant (WWTP).

​Learn more about what the Township of Oro-Medonte manages by visiting the Wastewater subpage.

Urban Stormwater Management

Environmental Services manages the many urban stormwater ponds located across the Municipality. These facilities are comprised of:​

  • Dry - detain water for a short period of time
  • Wet - hold a permanent pool of water
  • LID - Low Impact Development, which uses special filter media to treat stormwater
These man-made facilities are designed to mitigate flooding and clean the water before it is released into the soil or stream.

​Learn more about how the Township's Environmental Services department manages Urban Stormwater Ponds by visiting the Urban Stormwater Management subpage.


There are currently over 1,100 streetlights located in the Township of Oro-Medonte, with over 900 owned and operated by the Municipality.  The remaining 200 streetlights located across the Township are owned and operated by others including the Province of Ontario, the County of Simcoe, developers (yet to be assumed) or privately owned lights for individual properties.​
