With an increasing number of storms and torrential rains hitting the cities in Canada each year, basement flooding has become a major concern for many homeowners. To attend to this problem, the City of Toronto has come up with a plan to help these homeowners protect their basements from overflowing. Toronto Basement Flooding Subsidy Program
The Toronto Basement Flooding Subsidy Program has been introduced by the city to help people take measures to prevent basement flooding. Under this program, owners of single-family, duplex, and triplex residential homes are offered a subsidy of up to $3,400 per property to install flood protection devices in their basements. These include
- Backwater valve installation
- Sump pump installation
- Severance and capping of a home's storm sewer or external weeping tile connection.
You can contact any professional emergency drain repair service for these installations.
