    • August 18, 2020: Patching completed on Rainbow Road south of WID bridge. A permanent overlay patch is planned.
  • Catch Basin (also known as storm drain) maintenance

    • In some areas, inlet control devices are installed in the drains by the City or developers to control how fast water flows.
    • These devices prevent the storm system from causing water backups, flooding to houses/garages/businesses, and to protect the system from construction debris.
    • The flooding on your street will eventually drain once the storm system accepts the excess water - this can take up to 2 hours after rainfall has ended.
    • If it’s safe and possible to do, you may clear debris, ice and/or snow that’s blocking your storm drain to help water flow. Do not attempt to clean a catch basin if it’s submerged in water. You cannot be sure if the grate is intact, presenting a safety risk.
    • If water still completely covers the catch basin 2 hours after rainfall has ended - please contact Community Operations online or call 403-207-2807.
  • Storm Pond, Vault, Stormceptor and Outfall maintenance

Note: This excludes areas under developer control. Check the Street Sweeping Map to see areas currently under developer control.
