City Surveys Residents On Basement Flooding

The City of Windsor is looking to gather information on basement flooding.

Postcards are being mailed out to residents in Wards 6 and 7 with links to surveys being conducted. 

City officials are looking for input on what factors contributed to recent events like the widespread flooding at the end of September.

The 311 call centre received nearly 3,000 calls about flooding during that time. 

Information collected through the surveys will be used to help the city develop effective mitigation programs and allocate capital funding.
