2022 Flood Protection Subsidy Program Is Ending Soon

October 18, 2022

Brandon, MB – City of Brandon’s Development Services’ 2022 Flood Protection Subsidy Program for property owners is accepting applications until Wednesday, November 30, 2022.  

The Sewer Back-up Subsidy Program provides subsidy funding for property owners wanting to install either a sump pump and pit and/or a backwater valve in their home or business. The construction of new buildings will not be considered for this program.  

Subsidy funding is available for up to 75% of the total materials and installation cost up to a maximum of $2,500 for the sump pump and pit and up to a maximum of $1,500 for the backwater valve. Work must be completed by a licensed plumber to qualify for funding. This program is open for all property owners within City of Brandon boundaries. 

To qualify for the 2022 program, property owners must obtain a quote from a licensed plumber. If both components are being installed, the quote must list the two items separately to show individual costs. 

The plumber must supply a drawing that includes:  

  • Location and type of back water valve relative to basement plumbing  

  • Location of sump pit   

  • Discharge location of sump pump on exterior of house   

Applications for a flood protection permit can be made in person at the A.R. McDiarmid Building, located at 638 Princess Avenue, or via an online portal at permits.brandon.ca.   

Applications into the program must be made no later than November 30, 2022 with all work being completed, inspections done, and paperwork being submitted to the City of Brandon by December 15, 2022.
