Master Servicing Plan Update
The Municipality of Grey Highlands presently owns and operates a water distribution system and sanitary sewer system in Markdale, a sanitary sewer system in Flesherton, a sanitary sewer system in Amik-Talisman and a water distribution system in Kimberley-Amik-Talisman.
The Municipality of Grey Highlands began investigating the expansion of its municipal infrastructure in 2012 to provide reasonable water and wastewater servicing to its existing communities of Markdale, Flesherton, Kimberley, Amik, Eugenia, and Beaver Valley for future development.

Optimization of the Existing Markdale Wastewater Treatment Plant was completed once in 2018, and a current Environmental Assessment is underway for further optimization.
The process to reevaluate the MSP began in 2023 to engage with an engineering firm to complete the following scope of work:
