How to Protect Your Property During Rain Events

City of Sioux Falls
City of Sioux Falls

With the recent heavy rains and saturated soils, the City recommends homeowners take the following measures to minimize water damage to homes:

  • Make sure your sump pump is in good operational condition. Route the sump pump discharge hose as far away from the foundation as possible. (Reminder it is illegal to discharge a sump pump to the sanitary sewer.)
  • Ensure the ground slopes away from your house.
  • Make sure all window wells and basement windows are protected from water.
  • Ensure all gutters are clear of debris and able to operate properly.
  • Place extensions on downspouts to route water away from your foundation.
  • Seal basement foundation cracks to prevent groundwater seepage.

If surface water is entering your home from the street or adjacent waterway, please contact the City Engineering Department at 605-367-8601 to report this issue. If the water is causing an immediate danger to you or others, please dial 911.
