With the warmer weather expected over the next several days, we can expect significant snow melt and running water.
This brings with it concern about getting water in your basement. To avoid getting water in your basement, we recommend you:
- make sure your eavestroughs are clear
- the downspouts are down and at least three feet away from your house
- clear snow from the foundation of your house and especially from window wells
It is also a good idea to check your roof and furnace vents to make sure they are not blocked.
Municipal crews are out checking and clearing storm drains but if you notice that a storm drain near your home or business is blocked, please call the office at 403-562-8833 and let us know.
