Toronto Drain System
Toronto drain system originates in 1850-1860s, while shaping into a modern city. The number of citizens was steadily increasing. At that time, people did not worry about where their waste flow. Usually, all the contaminated water flowed into the nearest body of water, which had to be cleansed by natural means. But it did not always work, and led to a cholera epidemic. It was then that the townspeople started thinking about creating a sewage system.
Such systems already existed in the United States. But the creation of such a system required a lot of effort, financial investment and technical knowledge.
Residents of Toronto realized that for a healthy life they needed a good Toronto drain system with waste water purification.
Thus, the construction according to the purification of wastewater were built in 1910, on the south side of Leslie st. Capacity was 150,000 cubic meters per day.
Until the mid-20th century, Toronto already had 18 such facilities. Most of them were overworked and poorly equipped. Therefore, in the mid 1950s, the city decided to replace them with ones that had higher capacity and power. Some of them were converted into pumping stations. And since 1960, Toronto has four large treatment plants.
As we see, the system in Toronto is not very new, and it is constantly being renovated, repaired. Sometimes work can lead to malfunctions and a backup in your basement. Therefore, we recommend to install a backwater valve, also to prevent water from entering your basement from the city sewer. Note that you can get a rebate from the city for a backwater valve.
