Resources that can help

There are a number of people and organizations that can help you if you are concerned, or need help with your home drainage system. 

The Town of Slave Lake 

Planning & Development Services: 780-849-8004 

Operations Department: 780-849-4107 

Plumbers & Landscapers 

If you would like professional help correcting a drainage problem, look to professional plumbers and landscapers for help. Lists of plumbers or landscapers can be found in the Yellow Pages or by contacting the Better Business Bureau of Central and Northern Alberta at 780-482-2341. 

The Better Business Bureau can provide you with company reports 24 hours a day. Regardless of whom you contact, it’s a good idea to get three estimates and references before choosing a contractor. 

Do-it-yourself Resources 

If you plan on doing the work yourself, you can get a lot of support and information from hardware, home improvement, and plumbing supply stores. Many of the staff are trade professionals and are usually more than happy to share their knowledge and expertise with you.
