Basement Flooding

Halton’s Enhanced Basement Flooding Prevention Subsidy Program

Basement flooding can happen. Protect yourself, your neighbours and your community.

Halton Region is rolling out a region-wide Enhanced Basement Flooding Prevention Program for homeowners to reduce the risk of basement flooding in their homes. By increasing the resiliency of Regional programs and infrastructure, Halton is adapting to climate change.

The wastewater system is a complex network of pipes, drains and valves on public and private property. Halton Region is taking action to reduce overloading of the Region’s wastewater system and the potential for basement flooding due to sewer backups.
