Water, Sewer & Drainage
Water distribution and wastewaster collection (sewers) are part of your utility services with the City of Beaumont. Drainage in Beaumont refers to water moving through storm sewers, storm water management facilities and the LeBlanc Canal.
Operations ensures drainage in Beaumont through storm sewers, storm water management facilities, and the LeBlanc Canal. All storm water (rain water, snow thaw, and surface drainage) eventually makes its way to North Saskatchewan River.
During our annual spring thaw (March or April), natural ponding will occur on our roadways. Our team works to resolve ponding concerns as quickly as possible, through snow plowing, snow removal, catch basin clearing, swale clearing, and culvert steaming. We will prioritize the concerns by traffic volume on our roadways and public safety.
Our crews will be working along the edges of roadways clearing snow, ice, garbage, leaves and debris from the catch basins (drains) located along the curbs and gutters.
We would like to thank residents, in advance, for assisting in clearing catch basins (drains) on their streets.

Most houses in Beaumont have a storm service that drains the groundwater around the house with assistance of a sump pump. Storm services in Beaumont are above the frost line. Storm services can freeze in winter months; you can hook up a hose to the "Y" pipe beside your house to allow the groundwater from your sump pump to flow away from your foundation. You can prepare for spring thaw by purchasing a sump pump hose kit from your local hardware store.
