Drainage

On any given year, the municipality receives many drainage requests from landowners. The municipality prioritizes its projects for the annual drainage plan.

Small Drainage Projects - Landowner "Two-Tiered" Option

The RM of Hanover prioritizes all drainage request and projects. Smaller projects with less benefit to the overall municipal drainage system are often left on the drainage list request for many years. They may be funded by the Ward Councilor through his/her discretionary Transportation Budget as one of his/her projects, or eventually dropped from the list. 

The municipality is offering an alternative to landowners wanting these minor drainage projects to be completed in a timely manner. A "Two-Tiered Drainage Policy" has been created to assist.
