Disconnection of a current water source cannot be completed until the following is complete:

  • Inspection of inside connection
  • Inspection of the curb stop connection point
  • Pugwash Central Water Supply is fully operational

Arrangements to make a connection from the water supply to a home or a business (also called a lateral connection or a curb stop connection) must be made by the homeowner or business owner with a private contractor. A list of contractors known to the county can be found here. Costs associated with connection are the responsibility of the homeowner or businessowner.

Water meters are unavailable until such time that the system is fully operational, expected early October. Specifications for installation are available here

List of contractors


In 2012, The Municipality of the County of Cumberland, in conjunction with the Pugwash Village Commission, began the process of creating a central water supply for the Village of Pugwash.

On July 29, 2015, the Municipality of the County of Cumberland and provincial and federal officials announced a $14.9 million project that will bring clean water to the Village of Pugwash. The project involves building a centralized water treatment plant as well as an associated reservoir and distribution system to the village. 

Residents and institutions in and around Pugwash currently rely on individual wells to supply drinking water. Many of these wells are contaminated with dangerous metals, including arsenic, lead and uranium, as well as elevated levels of chloride, making the water unsafe to drink. This project will ensure the community has access to a clean and reliable supply of drinking water.

Website rebuild

The Village website is in the process of being re-built. 

Pugwash and area not for profit organizations will be included as before.  If you wish to be included as a new listing or update your old one, please send your information to the Village Clerk.
