Storm Water Drainage

Protecting Your Property from Damage

The City of Summerside’s Municipal Services Department manages the drainage of storm water to protect properties from damage.

Our storm water system includes a collection and distribution network of over 73.1kms of in-ground pipes, some of which have been in the ground since 1950. It also includes a system of over 2,850 catch basins that collect storm water run-off and redirect it to natural bodies of water.

There are 147.5 kms of roadside in the City, 32.4km with ditches.

It costs the City $1,500 per metre of street to fill a ditch. It would cost $50 million to fill all the remaining ditches in Summerside.
