Underground pipes installed around the foundation of your home, called weeping tiles, collect groundwater in order to drain it away from the foundation of your home. In older homes, weeping tiles may drain into the sanitary sewer system. Halton encourages homeowners to disconnect their weeping tiles from the sanitary sewer system and re-connect them to a sump pump. This improvement will significantly reduce the amount of storm water entering into the wastewater system resulting in a reduced risk of basement flooding due to sewer backup.
Halton will cover 100% of the costs to disconnect weeping tiles and install a sump pump, up to a maximum of $5,000. To be eligible, the work must include disconnecting the weeping tiles from the sanitary sewer system, and residents must use a contractor from our list of authorized contractors.
