Storm Water System

Storm water runoff includes rainwater and snowmelt that flows across the land and enters a network of storm water infrastructure in Saskatoon, including pipes, culverts, ditches, outfalls, manholes, and catch basins. 

Storm water is collected via storm drains, usually located at the curbs of roads, and then moved via a piping system to large mainline pipes. Eventually the storm water flows into the South Saskatchewan River. 

This storm water system is a vital part of the City's infrastructure. Managing storm water protects the health and safety of the public and the environment by mitigating flooding and erosion, and preventing pollutants from reaching our waterways.
