1.7 Downspout Extension and Drainage Patterns

In order to allow for the most efficient relief of surface water run-off, it is important to respect the grading plan for your home site that has been pre-designed for all lots. The Builder/Home Owner is responsible for containing surface drainage on their lot. It is important to indicate on the landscape plan how you intend to direct or contain this drainage and run-off with directional arrows. We recommend that downspouts be extended away from the home but the extension of the outlet cannot be closer than 4m from front or back property.

Weeping tile sump discharge must be directed to surface drainage. No sewer connections are permitted. Please note this is a City of Regina Bylaw. Ideally, sump pump discharge should be directed to the rear of the lot to a maximum of 4m from rear property line. If sump pump discharge is directed to front of lot it cannot come within 4m of front property line.

Daylighting weeping tile to the sidewalk is prohibited.
