The rain has stopped but we are still receiving very high flows at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. If you have a sump pump in your house, please remember this can not be pumped into the City’s sewer system. Any hoses leading to a drain in your house should be disconnected immediately.

Please place the hose so that the water from your sump pump drains away from your house, preferably onto a grassy area or non-paved surface and is absorbed on your property.

DO NOT place the hose so that water from your sump pump drains:
• Into the floor drain in your home
• Into manholes on your property or on the street
• Onto neighbouring properties
• Onto streets, lanes, sidewalks or boulevards
