Spring brings the promise of warmer weather and more daylight and it also brings a variety of weather conditions including floods, heavy rains and the spring thaw. Neighbourhoods are designed to ensure that the water flows away from your home towards the sewer. However, Spring is often a time when residential drainage issues are discovered. An ounce of prevention is key to protecting your property or business. You might notice some excessive water sitting in your yard after a minor rain storm.
Some issues that may crop up include a soil that is composed entirely of clay (which doesn’t allow for any drainage), low lying neighbourhood with a high water table or the grading wasn’t done correctly.
