Spring is creeping towards us and with the arrival of warm weather, so shall you see big puddles or standing water around town.
Whether it be in a residential or public area, standing water can build up for multiple reasons.
"There are some complaints about flooding (and)or one of the catch basins that's clogged," said Armia Mikhaiel, the towns' Director of Infrastructure Services. "They (towns people) can contact us and we will include it in our list and send a steamer to make sure it's clear and drained properly."
The Town of Drumheller is aware that some areas of the town will collect water. It could be from clogged drains or covered covered basins.
"We are trying to clear the drainage on the surface for the streets to make sure there is no water standing," Mikhaiel explained. "However, if it warms up (rapidly) we might have some water standing and we will be dealing with it in accordance."
"If they see any water backing up or one of the catch basins not draining, they can contact us and we will take care of it." Mikhaiel added.
If you want to be proactive, uncovering catch basins from ice or debris will prevent flooding in the streets. If you do find yourself needing or wanting the town to deal with, follow this link.
