Mandatory Downspout Disconnection in Scarborough and Surrounding Areas

Follow Toronto’s Mandatory Downspout Disconnection Program

A recent change to Toronto's by-law makes it mandatory for homeowners to disconnect their downspouts. The expert team of Armstrong & Nelson Eavestroughing can do an inspection of your system and promptly get you in compliance. As a property owner, you should check the map that is on the Toronto water website to determine whether or not you are required to do the disconnection.

What are the Benefits of Disconnecting?

The major benefit that you'll gain by doing the disconnection is reducing the risk of basement flooding which can cost you thousands of dollars. It is the easiest and most convenient way to store storm water on your property which can be recycled or used for giving garden and lawn flowers chlorine-free water. Moreover, thanks to the disconnection you will also cut off your contribution to combined sewer overflows and in this way you put a little effort into making Canada’s beaches clean.
