Municipal Water & Wastewater

The Township of Assiginack maintains two water treatment plants, one in the community of Manitowaning and one in the Sunsite Estates subdivision. Wastewater treatment facilities service the community of Manitowaning. Sewage is collected into the sewer system and pumped to the wastewater treatment plant. The sewage system is equipped with two pumps and a 6″ force main, which discharges to two waste stabilization ponds. The treated effluent from the waste stabilization ponds is semi-annually discharged to Manitowaning Bay.
