Basement Flooding - Retraction

 Share on Facebook

The Spring 2013 Triangle Topics article about Basement Flooding drew response from the city to point out errors: Our area is in Basement Flooding Study Area 32 (it hasn't been designated as a "Basement Flooding Zone"); installation of devices to prevent flooding doesn't place additional pressure on the sewer system; no assessment of your home is required in application for city subsidies; approval of subsidy under the Basement Flooding Subsidy Protection Program is not on a first-come, first-served basis; and no building permits or city inspections are needed in retrofitting your home with backwater valves or sump pumps. We regret that a private contractor flyer that was made to look like an official City of Toronto publication was used as a source for the article.
