The City’s Public Works team is advising area residents that a flood outlook is in effect for the City of Sault Ste. Marie.

Residents are asked to keep a close watch on water conditions and clear any catch basins in front of houses keeping them free of leaves and debris, regularly check for updated weather forecasts and stay away from fast-moving rivers and streams.

Damage assessment and repairs will be ongoing by the City’s Public Works teams until all areas affected by the rainfall have been addressed. A request for service from Public Works can be made online through the City’s website at saultstemarie.ca or by calling 705-759-5201.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks citizens for their cooperation and patience during this rainfall period. Further updates will be provided as required.
