Sanitary Sewer By-law No. 16611 authorizes the City to operate a sanitary sewerage system as a municipal service on a self-liquidating basis for the benefit of residents and businesses of the City. The By-law regulates extensions, connections and use of the sanitary sewerage system, and along with Fee Setting By-law No. 14577, sets the charges for using the system. The By-law is enforced through a summary conviction clause with a range of fines and through a specific Schedule of Fines found in Municipal Ticket Information By-law No. 12508. Visit City of Surrey's By-Law web page for more information.
