As the property owner, you are responsible for your lot grading. You and your builder should read the City of Winnipeg Lot Grading By-Law before:

  • deciding on the grading for a new house, or
  • making changes to existing grading.
Surface drainage problems

Improper lot grading can cause poor surface drainage. Runoff from heavy rain or melting snow can result in:

  • standing water,
  • flooding,
  • foundation settlement or damage, or
  • basement dampness.

Direct surface drainage away from your foundation and especially from window wells.
