Water is at the heart of all life, especially for a town on the edge of the sea. The history of Yarmouth’s water utility dates back to 1879 with the creation of the Yarmouth Water Company. To learn more about the water utility, including its history and the Lake George Watershed, check out our Water Utility page. On this page, we'll cover the utility's services and regulations.

Water Emergency Service

If you have an after hours emergency, for example, water entering your basement, contact the Yarmouth Fire Department Dispatch Service at 902-742-3147, and your information will be directed to the appropriate department. An after hours service fee to disconnect water will apply.
