The Town of Stony Plain strives to protect properties from flooding, while preserving sensitive aquatic habitats. Information on the Town's approach to stormwater management can be found at.....
Stormwater runoff is collected from homes and businesses and safely transported through a system of catch basins, pipes, pump stations, ditches and streams. Care should be taken to prevent harmful substances from entering catch basins, which will end up polluting our creeks and streams.
You can help prevent flooding by ensuring your drainage pipes are working properly and keeping catch basins and ditches clear of debris.
Catch basins allow rainwater runoff to be safely collected to prevent road and property flooding. Usually located along the edge of the roadway or ditch, storm water is directed through the steel grate covering the catch basin structure. Please do not dump waste into these drains. The storm water is then conveyed from the catch basin through to a sewer system, which outlets into streams, rivers or lakes. The heavier suspended particles are collected in the bottom of the catch basin, stopping them from travelling into the water supply.
All catch basins, marked or unmarked, are connected to creeks, streams and other environmentally sensitive water bodies. You can help protect fish and wildlife habitat by:
- disposing of household hazardous wastes, such as oil, paint and toxic chemicals, at proper disposal facilities;
- not emptying hot tubs or pools into the storm sewer system; chlorine and pool chemicals are lethal to fish;
- avoiding pesticides and fertilizers – these cause excessive vegetation growth in streams, which chokes out the oxygen needed for fish and aquatic life to survive;
- limiting areas of concrete, paving and other hard surfaces on your property; rain that soaks into the ground helps keep streams flowing during periods of low rainfall; and
- washing your cars on your lawn to prevent soap and other detergents from entering catch basins and polluting streams.
Flooding can happen when extremely heavy rainfalls occur and the runoff exceeds the capacity of the drainage system. Flooding can also happen when drain pipes become blocked by tree roots or debris.
Here are some steps you can take to avoid flooding around your home:
- Clean your foundation's drains and sumps: these drains collect water from your house and property and direct it to the Town's storm sewer. The pipes can become blocked by leaves, dirt, roots or debris and should be flushed out periodically, and in some cases, replaced.
- Clear gutters and catch basins: keep catch basins and gutters clear of leaves and debris. Rake up leaves in the fall to prevent overland flooding caused by plugged drains. Find the catchbasin nearest your home or business, and check periodically that it is clean, so water can drain properly.
- Clear ditches and culverts: if you have an open ditch along your property, check to see that it is clear. Common items such as toys, balls and milk jugs can often get lodged in culverts and cause water to back up.
- Repair Broken or Damaged Pipes: broken or damaged pipes can cause blockages and flooding of your home. Check that your home drainage system is working properly.
