Environment Canada has issued alerts for heavy rainfall, which can reduce visibility and result in water pooling on roads. It is possible that falling leaves may block storm drains, combined with significant rain, and cause local flooding. Residents should clear their gutters/drains on their property, and, if it is safe to do so, clear the catch basins in the road from any debris.
If necessary to protect your Central Saanich property, sand and sandbags (to bag your own) are available in front of the Municipal Yard located at 1703 Keating Cross Road. For further information on flood and the use of sandbags, check out the links below.
Report clogged storm drains or other non-emergency issues to the Municipal Yard at 250-544-4224.
