Backwater Prevention Assistance Program

If a property owner’s basement floods during rain events, an application may be submitted to the Utilities Maintenance Division to participate in a program to eliminate basement flooding caused by surcharging of the City’s collection system.   The City will conduct an investigation to determine if the installation of a backwater valve would correct the situation. The City may reimburse the owner up to $4,600 towards the cost of these plumbing changes. Applications are available at the Service Center or by clicking here.
