2022 Survey:

The Village of Keremeos conducted a September, 2022 survey of the performance of septic tank and field disposal systems in the areas of the village not yet served by community sewers. The purpose of the survey was to understand the extent of problems being experienced by some septic users, and the costs borne by community members for repairs and maintenance of their septic systems.
