Waste Water:
The Park is serviced by a Large Municipal Non-Residential Drinking-Water System and a Sewage Collection and Treatment System with water distribution and sewage collection pipes located on municipal road allowances.  The Wastewater Treatment System consists of a 4 cell Facultative Lagoon, operating in accordance with MOE Certificate of Approval 3-0155-77-006 dated April 29th, 1977.
At the current time, only approximately 35 acres of the park are developed with only seven industrial users purchasing water and contributing to the sewage collection and treatment system.  The industries currently discharge primarily domestic sewage.  In addition, the wasterwater treatment system receives septage from area haulers.
Park revenues consist of four components being; property tax revenues from the seven park users, water usage charges for the seven park users, dumping fees for the septage haulers and contributions from seven area municipalities, one first nation and minor contributions from some other municipalities in the area.

Road System:
Woods Road was constructed many years ago and was used as an access to Highway 69 from the interior of Carling Township.  The Industrial Park Board was formed in the late 1960’s and the property was purchased along Woods Road in roadthe early 1970’s.  Subsequent to this, the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) rebuilt Woods Road from Highway 69 to the C.P.R. railway to industrial road standards.
The compaction involved rolled and packed material, including 6″ plus of A gravel below which 18″ to 24″ of Granular "B” formed the road base.  The subsidiary roads of Eglund Drive and Ritchie Court were also constructed to MTO standards for industrial use.

General:
Commissions: A real estate broker or his agent must file with the Board a bona fide duly completed Offer to Purchase (or Option to Purchase).  The commission rate will be established by the park board and will be subject to change with 30 days notice to the Parry Sound Real Estate Board.  Any real estate commission will be payable upon closing.
Signing: Commercial and Industrial identification signs may be installed under conditions as outlined in the current Carling Township Sign By-law.
Hook-up Fees: The board of hooking onto the water and sewer facilities is the responsibility of the land owner.  The labour, material and any other related costs will be charged back to the landowner at cost.  The board will hire its own contractor to do the work required to hook up and extend the water and sewer facilitates to the property lot line.  The land owner will have the water and sewer line excavation work done up to the lot line.  The land owner will also be responsible for the excavation from the lot line to the water and sewer mains.  However, this must be done under the supervision of the Industrial Park Board staff.
