The deadline for Mandatory Downspout Disconnection was December 3, 2016. However residents do have a time to make the change and need to call 311 for information.  Information packages were also sent to homes across the City where it explains that residents may apply for an exemption if needed and may ask for additional time to make the change.

At this time Toronto Water is still educating residents on the benefits.  If a complaint is called into the City on an address that has not made the change, the resident will be provided with additional information and provided time to comply.   The city would only visit a property on a complaint basis.

Property owners who believe that disconnecting their downspouts is not technically feasible or could cause a safety hazard can apply to the City for an exemption.  Exemptions/Applications are here, If you have any questions about this issue, please call 311 or email
All the information regarding Mandatory Downspout Disconnection Program can be found by clicking here

Please call 311 or our office 416-396-7222 directly if you require further assistance.

Potentially misleading communications:

Toronto Water has received reports that at least one independent contractor may be distributing potentially misleading communications (such as flyers and notices placed on door knobs) that appear to be designed to look like they are communications from the City about its mandatory downspout disconnection program. The City is not sending out any mass communications, such as flyers or door knockers entitled “Notice” or “Final Notice”, to residents about mandatory downspout disconnection.

The City is investigating these incidents and will take appropriate action.  The City of Toronto does not endorse, recommend, or partner with any private company to either carry out downspout disconnections or enforce mandatory downspout disconnection. Only City bylaw officers are authorized to identify a property for non-compliance with a City bylaw.
