Continuous Rainfall is Causing Big Business for Contractors

Friday, August 5th, 2011 by Zach Stachura


If it doesn’t stop raining in Edmonton soon the city may be driven to further delay road construction. There has been rain in the city 33 of the last 43 days which is having effects on the many road construction projects at this time.

More rain is on the way for Edmonton as the weather office is calling for rain four out of the next six days. The heavy rainfall this summer means big business for basement contractors in the city like Glenn Suprovich, who works for Basement Systems Edmonton. Suprovich says he has been getting 20 to 25 calls a day from Edmonton residents experiencing seepage problems. This is quite a bit more than the average two to three calls he would get on a normal day. 

Suprovich gave words of advice to residents who want to prevent seepage and flooding in their homes. “They can do a lot on their own. They can make sure their sump pump is working,” says Suprovich. “And also, make sure if there is seepage that they get it fixed. They don’t have to wait until the city gets four days of rain.”
