Summer Checklist - Text version

Be #FloodReady all year round

Flooding can happen anywhere in Canada, any time of the year. To be #FloodReady this summer, add these tasks to your seasonal list of home maintenance.

Summer Checklist

  • Keep eavestroughs and downspouts clear.
  • Check driveway and patio drainage.
  • Install French drains (weeping tile) in areas that get waterlogged.
  • Consider planting a “rain garden” to absorb runoff.

Don’t wait for the water!

Take steps to protect your property.
