Basement Flooding Study Area 42, 44, 62 - Downtown

This event has already taken place.

During extreme rainfall events, sewers and drainage systems can become overloaded, which can lead to basement and surface flooding. In 2013, City Council approved the development of comprehensive plans across 67 study areas in the city to reduce the risk of flooding. The study for areas 42, 44 and 62 began in 2019, and covers the area generally bound by St. Clair Avenue West to Lake Ontario and Jane Street to the Don Valley Parkway.

These areas have interconnected sewer and drainage systems that span several wards across the city. City staff have studied the factors that contribute to surface and basement flooding in the area, and have developed recommended solutions to address these issues.

If you are the owner of a single-family residence, a street level storefront business, free-hold townhome or a condominium property manager, we want to hear from you. View the recommended solutions in your neighbourhood and register for our virtual public consultation at toronto.ca/DowntownBF.
