During and After Flooding

Severe thunderstorms are a fact of life in Edmonton.

Often, during the summer months, rain storms drench the city in short periods of time. Golf ball sized hail clumps together in the fast-moving rainwater, clogging sewer drains. As a result, streets, roadways and homes may be flooded causing extensive damage to public and private properties.

Flood Prevention Programs are meant to address the problems, improve the sanitary and stormwater systems, and equip homeowners with the information and knowledge to make drainage and lot grading improvements.
