West Fernie Sewer Connections Are Now Permitted

Good news!  All of West Fernie is now permitted to connect to the City of Fernie’s sanitary sewer system.  Below you’ll find links to the City of Fernie’s process and a copy of their plumbing permit application.  If you have questions about this process, you can contact the Jenny Dickhout, Engineering Technologist with the City of Fernie at 250.423.2227 or jenny.dickhout@fernie.ca.


Questions related to construction or the project should still be directed to Elizabeth Ahlgren at eahlgren@rdek.bc.ca or 1-888-478-7335.

Items of Note:

  • Contractors will be back in the spring to finish out their work.
  • The City of Fernie’s boundary restructure to include the Phase 2 area should be complete shortly, per the Province. We will continue to keep you updated on that front as we learn more.
