Region of Halton’s basement flooding prevention subsidy program

Do you live in Burlington and experienced basement flooding in the August rain storm? Or if you haven’t, is your insurance company making it mandatory for you to install a backwater valve or sump pump in your home due to the Burlington flood?

In either case, you may be eligible for a subsidy from the Region of Halton’s Basement Flooding Prevention Subsidy Program.

The program has become much more popular since the Burlington flood in August 2014. Their instructions have been recently updated. It provides a breakdown of all available reimbursements regarding:

  • Backwater valve
  • Sump pump system
  • Downspout disconnection
  • Weeping Tile disconnection

Not sure if you need one? See our more recent post that may help you decide.
