Environmental Services

The Township of Oro-Medonte provides a number of Environmental Services.

​​​To learn more about Water, Wastewater, Urban ​Stormwater & Streetlights please view the dropdown menu below or use the navigation on the righthand side of the webpage.​ 

​The Municipal water operations in the Township are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Operations include; monitoring, inspection, testing, Drinking Water Quality Management System -DWQMS, Water Conservation, remote Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - SCADA control.

​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).

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 are engineered facilities designed to mitigate flooding and clean the water before releasing downstream.

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.​

​The Township of Oro-Medonte is dedicated to protecting our environment and battling the effects of climate change. We are pleased to present our up-coming and on-going Climate Change Initiatives below:
