Keep Catchbasins and Culverts Clear of Debris

Photo of a Small CulvertDue to the amount of rain and snowfall we received this week and in light of the forecasted warmer temperatures for the balance of the week, the public is encouraged to keep the following in mind regarding their private property and public property:

  • Check your sump pump discharge pipe to ensure it is clear and functioning properly.
  • Those residents that have installed backflow prevention valves, check to make sure they are clear of any debris so that they will operate properly.
  • If your driveway culvert is exposed, check to make sure it is open and clear of debris to prevent flooding.

The Town of Fort Erie appreciates its residents and business owner’s patience and assistance throughout this recent weather event. If you notice any particular issue or problem areas please call the Town’s Operations Centre at 905-871-1600 or visit
