Stormwater Service and Infrastructure
The City manages the water runoff from rain and snow melt through its stormwater management program. Most of the City’s stormwater infrastructure is hidden underground. It operates daily as a citywide network to prevent flooding, keep roads safe and protect water quality. Stormwater infrastructure and service includes:
• storm sewers
• curbside drains
• stormwater management ponds
• bridges and culverts
• stream rehabilitation
• flood mitigation works
• maintenance and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure
• environmental compliance
• emergency response and clean up
• street sweeping
• by-law enforcement
To learn more about stormwater visit the City’s stormwater management program site.
