Rain Ready Ottawa is a City of Ottawa pilot program that encourages and supports residents to take action on their property to reduce the harmful impacts of rainwater runoff.
EnviroCentre has partnered with the City of Ottawa to manage and deliver a detailed assessment of rainwater management (water flow) on residential properties in priority watersheds. Homeowners will receive a customized report that outlines challenges, simple solutions and recommendations for more in-depth ways to manage rainwater on their property. Learn more about Rain Ready Ottawa here.
The Rain Ready Ottawa program is currently offering rebates for some recommended approaches based on these assessments.
Rain Ready Ottawa offers rebates for five practices:
- Downspout redirection (Up to $1,000)
- Rain garden installation (Up to $2,500)
- Soak-away pit installation (Up to $2,500)
- Permeable pavements (Up to $5,000)
- Fusion Landscape Professional designs ($500)
Home assessments take about one hour and are free for residents in priority areas in Ottawa. A friendly, knowledgeable EnviroCentre representative will come to your home to do a site visit of your property. You will then receive your customized report within 7 business days. We will never need to enter your home but do ask that a homeowner be present for the duration of the site assessment.
Note: we are fully booked for summer 2021 Rain Ready Ottawa Home Assessment appointments.
