The Town of Dunham has initiated a program to empty septic tanks on all properties not connected to the municipal sewer system.  Beginning in 2021, septic tank emptying will be scheduled every two years, on an alternating basis, depending on the sector. Please consult the schedule of roads and streets to be done in 2021, as well as those scheduled for 2022: Registry of septic systems 2021-2022

According to the Town’s chart, if your road or street is scheduled for 2021 and you have had your tank emptied within the last 12 months, it is your responsibility to send us a copy of the paid invoice. The Town will remove your address from the schedule, and you will avoid being billed by the Municipality. A copy of this invoice must be submitted by July 16, 2021, either:

  • by e-mail:
  • by mail: Town of Dunham | 3777 Principale Street, Dunham Québec  J0E 1M0, or
  • deposited in the secure mail chute near the main door of Town Hall.

You must integrate into the established schedule adopted by the Town.

The contractor’s full coordinates, including the contact person’s name, must appear on the invoice and/or supporting documentation.

If your road or street is not scheduled in the current year and it is not an emergency, please wait until the following year to have your septic tank pumped to conform with the long-term program scheduled for 2021–2022, 2023–2024 and onward.


Your septic tank was pumped in August 2020 and, according to the Town’s schedule, it should be pumped in 2021.

What to do?

You must send a copy of your invoice to the Town Hall and wait until 2023 for the next emptying, thereby aligning with the Town’s program. If there is an emergency, you must send the invoice and the necessary information to the Municipality.

For any additional information, please contact the reception of the Town Hall at: or 450.295.2418, extension 0.

A few weeks before the start of the program, a reminder notice will be sent to all affected owners.
