Mandatory Downspout Disconnection 

September 8, 2022 


The City is asking us to remind you of the Mandatory Downspout Disconnection Program.

There are multiple benefits to this including:

  • Disconnecting your home’s downspout so it directly waters the lawn or garden, or goes into a rain barrel for use later, saves both water and money.
  • Diverting your downspout away from your home’s foundation helps reduce the risk of basement flooding.
  • Disconnecting your downspout so it is no longer directly connected to the sewer system helps keep the City of Toronto’s storm sewers from overloading during heavy rain.
  • The program also offers eligible households financial assistance for downspout disconnection, where some costs could be reimbursed.
