When street and lane catch basins are frozen or filled with debris in the spring, melting snow cannot drain away from alleys, streets, or greenspaces adjacent to your property.
Help us help you
Keeping your sidewalk, gutter and the area around catch basins free of snow, ice and debris provides a clear path for melting ice and snow to enter the storm drainage system.
Shovelling ice and snow from your sidewalk also helps your yard by providing your lawn with valuable moisture in the spring and reducing the amount of ice and snow melting into the gutter.
Reporting blocked catch basins
You should report blocked catch basins when the water that has accumulated may be hazardous or can cause significant property damage.
To report a blocked catch basin, use the City's online Contact Us form or call the City of Regina at 306-777-7000 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. You must provide the location of the catch basin, either by street address or by intersection.
It may take a while for crews to come out as all requests are prioritized according to severity/the priority street plan and completed on that basis.
