Flooding can happen when you least expect it. Halton Region has invested millions of dollars in optimizing the wastewater sewer system throughout the region. These improvements help ensure that the Region’s wastewater sewer system is more resilient to impacts of climate change, including more frequent and severe localized wet weather.
Our Enhanced Basement Flooding Prevention Subsidy Program makes it easier and more affordable for residents to undertake home improvements that can help reduce the risk flooding. Find out what subsidies are available:
Note: In order to qualify for the weeping tile disconnection & sump pump installation subsidy, you must use a contractor included on Halton’s list of Approved Contractors. For downspout disconnection, backwater valve installation, or sewer lateral lining or repair subsidies, you may use a contractor of your own choosing. To find contractors who may provide services required for these additional subsidies, try searching online under wording such as downspout, backwater valve or sewer repair contractors.
