Costs for Water, Sewer, Property Taxes – A PEI Comparison

For real estate cost references with other areas of the Province of Prince Edward Island, it is helpful to know what home owners pay for water and sewerservices and for annual property taxes. Water supply in Granville on the Water is from a collectively owned system through the Granville on the Water Homeowners Association. Sewer is handled individually on each lot through each owners private septic disposal field, installed with the home build. The roads in GOTW are privately owned by the Homeowners Association so snow removal costs depend on the snowfall in any particular winter.
