Dear residents, with the new improvements to our water supply lines there is an increased amount of pressure to households. The Town is recommending all residents have a pressure release valve installed on their homes. Please contact the office or maintenance operator if you have any further questions.

The Bay de Verde Heritage House was built in 1896 by Mr. John Blundon and family of Bay de Verde. The structure of the house is a good example of Merchant Class Victorian housing. The house was donated by Mrs. Dorothy Blundon and family to the Town of Bay de Verde on September 16, 1996 (exactly 100 years after it was constructed). It is now preserved and used as a Heritage House.
