Risk Of Flooding With Rain In Forecast

Catch basins need to be cleared

With rain in the forecast and all that snow still on the ground – some it blocking catch basins – work crews will be making the rounds today clearing as many as they can to reduce the risk of flooding. It’s a big job, says Barrie’s Roads Director Dave Friary, so if you’d like to help out by clearing the grate by your house, that would be appreciated. He says they’re not hard to find, if you punch your address into Google Streetview and check to see if there’s on in front of your house.
