Residents Urged to Clear Catch Basins

(Friday, October 14/05) - In light of the heavy rainfall forecast again for the weekend, Halifax Regional Municipalities urges residents to ensure catch basins in front of their property are free from leaves and other blockages which could result in flooding.

Public Works and Transportation crews try to clear catch basins in high-risk flood areas, but it is impossible for them to clear all of the many thousands of catch basins located throughout our region.

HRM and other areas of the province experienced record high rainfalls last weekend and
the forecast is again calling for heavy downpours on both Saturday and Sunday.

HRM thanks the public for their assistance with this matter.
