With between 50 and 80 mm of rain expected by Saturday evening, here are four tips from the City of Saskatoon to help reduce the risk of basement flooding and seepage of rainfall in homes.

  1. Check roof and eaves troughs for leaks, debris or disconnected downspouts.
  2. Extend eavestroughs to get water away from the home.
  3. Make sure the yard drains properly.
  4. Make sure sump pumps are operational.
