Drainage systems in many neighbourhoods throughout Edmonton are being upgraded and improved to reduce the risk of flooding. Maintaining good drainage on your residential property is an important part of the flood prevention equation – and we're here to help!
A flooded yard or basement is inconvenient, can cause serious damage to your property and cost you time and money.
Our Flood Prevention Home Check-up service helps homeowners identify and resolve drainage deficits on their property to minimize the risk of flood damage to their homes. The service is available to any residential homeowner in Edmonton. However, preference for booking an appointment is given to homeowners that have a history of flooding.
Backwater valve subsidy program
This program has reached its maximum funding availability for 2017. The program will be redesigned for 2018. Please check back early next year for details. Following your home flood prevention check-up, you will be provided with written recommendations and information on how to resolve drainage problems specific to your home.
The complimentary check-up takes about 1 hour. The inspection points out key areas for maintaining good drainage on your residential property. Using an evaluation check list, a drainage specialist will inspect your home's exterior and interior to identify steps that will help you minimize the risk of future flooding.
The free service is available from spring to fall, weather permitting. Check-ups can be scheduled on weekdays. Email
