am committed to working with citizens and council to provide a more consistent transit experience
for people across Greater Sudbury.”

City of Greater Sudbury Advises Residents to be Prepared for Spring Thaw
The City's operations crews are monitoring the spring thaw, storm sewers and roadside ditches en-route to
the large watercourses found throughout the City. Operations crews have been thawing frozen culverts,
clearing storm grates and removing snow from ditches over the last several weeks, as required, to minimize
ponding issues. City roads have not been closed at this point due to water-over-the-road, however, the
most vulnerable areas are being closely monitored. Citizens are advised to exercise normal precautions in
the vicinity of drainage ditches.
With the onset of rain and spring thaw, citizens are also reminded there are things they can do to reduce
the potential of basement flooding:
• Check your sump pump to ensure it is operating and your sump pit to ensure it is not blocked by debris.
• Reposition your downspout, if necessary, to direct water away from the foundation and any neighbouring
• Valuables stored on basement floors should be moved to a safe location if you are concerned about
• Know what to do if your basement floods. The City of Greater Sudbury offers a flood preparedness
package on its web site at www.greatersudbury.ca. The most important thing is protection from electrical
shock. Do not enter a flooded basement without rubber boots and do not touch anything metal. Contact
your hydro utility and gas utility for disconnects, if necessary. If your basement is flooded with sewage,
contact a licensed plumber as a first step.
• Instruct your children to stay away from fast moving water.
• If you encounter a flooded road, do not attempt to drive or walk through the flooded area. If you are in a
vehicle surrounded by rising water, leave the vehicle and proceed to safe ground.
Conservation Sudbury (NDCA) will provide updated Watershed Bulletins on its website at www.nickeldistrict.
ca as required. Citizens with questions regarding watershed conditions can contact Conservation Sudbury
(NDCA) at 705-674-5249.
Citizens are reminded that 9-1-1 should only be dialed to report a crime in progress or a life-threatening
emergency situation. Citizens are encouraged to phone 3-1-1 if they observe any concerns related to the
spring melt or flooding.
