The Municipal Servicing Standards Manual is designed to provide an information guide to set standards governing design, preparation and submission of plans and specifications for construction of municipal improvements in the MD. This document is utilized by developers, engineering consultants, utility companies and various MD departments.

These standards are provided to set out the "minimum" allowable levels to which the requisite improvements are to be built. In instances where the standards do not cover a particular situation or occurrence, good engineering judgment shall be used. All development shall comply with the requirements of the MD, all applicable Land Use Bylaws, and Provincial and Federal legislation.

No departure from these standards shall be permitted without the written approval of the Director of Field Services. The MD shall be the final authority on any disputed plans. Minor revisions may be given verbal approval by the Director of Field Services, but a change order shall be issued to record such revisions.
