Working to manage stormwater

We’re doing a four-part mini-series on stormwater: what is it? Why should residents care? What is the City doing to help reduce the risk of flooding and erosion in Vaughan? What can residents do to help? We’ll cover those questions here.

The City of Vaughan’s stormwater management program supports flood protection, maintains water quality and helps in climate change mitigation if infrastructure is well maintained. To learn more, visit vaughan.ca/stormwater.

Here is the third post of this series:

City of Vaughan services help reduce the risk of flooding and erosion, protect the environment and keep our water clean.

Services include:

  • Testing the quality of stream water and creeks
  • Inspecting stormwater outlets to check for pollution sources
  • Maintaining and repairing the hundreds of miles of pipes that make up the public draining system to prevent spills and backups
  • Finding solutions for cleaning stormwater in built up city areas:
    • Street sweeping removes litter before it reaches streams
    • Installation of rain gardens captures and filters stormwater
    • Stream restoration repairs damaged banks
