We can’t win.  Week upon week of snow and now we are to get rain and need to watch for flooding! The city has 12 crews clearing snow and ice from catch basins and culverts throughout the city,” said Cathy Robertson, director of the roads and parks maintenance department. “They will keep at it until later this evening and then continue again on Thursday.”

Temperatures are predicted to rise to 4 C.  How many days ago was it when there were snow plows driving up and down our streets putting piles of snow at the end of our driveways

Residents are asked to assist by checking and clearing storm drains and culverts in front of their homes if they are able to do so.

If there is flooding please call 905-333-6166 between 8:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or email rpm@burlington.ca.
