Water & Sewer
Alexandria features municipal water and sewer services. The village of Glen Robertson has a municipally maintained communal well for water but no sewer system. Maxville has sewer services but relies on individual wells for drinking water.
The Township and its regional partners are working together to bring treated drinking water from the City of Cornwall's system to Maxville (and Alexandria). The system will provide stable reliable potable water for Maxville homes and businesses and remove the reliance on the ground water table. In Alexandria, the water is costly to treat and the water source from Cornwall will mean he aging water treatment plant can be decommissioned and provide a more stable and environmentally sustainable source of water for decades to come. The planning for the project is complete and the Township is looking forward to securing the capital financing in the coming months.
