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.
