Sewage System Inspection Fact Sheet

Who is the Applicable Septic Authority for Me?

For the vast majority of cottages in Algonquin Provincial Park, the applicable septic authority is the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority. For cottages in Nightingale Township (including Rock Lake, the Madawaska River between Rock and Whitefish Lakes, the southern end of Whitefish Lake and Galeairy Lake) the applicable authority is the Township of Algonquin Highlands. Contact information is provided below. If you are considering building a new system or replacing an existing one, contact the cottage lot program and the applicable authority well in advance. Site visits by the applicable authority and/or the Ministry may be required in advance of any permits being issued.
