The location of manholes in the City of Edmonton. A manhole is a vertical structure connecting the ground-level to an underground sewer.

311 Explorer is a web-based mapping tool that uses the City’s open data information to search, filter, and display 311 service requests on public property. You will be able to:
View the various types of service requests on public property that have been generated in a neighborhood, ward or across the city, see the status of service requests, use the map or charts for analysis of neighbourhoods
This story is based on the results of a 2016 study, using 2014 data, done for the Edmonton area to determine the vulnerable drainage and sewage areas of Edmonton in regards to a 1 in 100 year rainfall event.
Due to the constant changing of subsurface infrastructure (adding, upgrading, etc.) combined with the constant changing definition of a 1 in 100 year rainfall event (based on historic rainfall amounts), this raster file reflects the results of a study done in 2016 and should neither suggest previous year’s vulnerabilities nor future year’s vulnerabilities.
For a more regional Edmonton area breakdown of the Study’s results:
There are three different colour to the vulnerability of the roadways and the corresponding ponding depth that would occur for that area during a large rainstorm.
Those colours are:
Green (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from less than 2.5 m)
Yellow (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from 1.5 to 2.5 m)
Red (representing the depth from surface that sanitary flows can surcharge from greater than 1.5 m)
This Raster file is best viewed overlaid with the 2016 Flood Mitigation Study - Drainage and Sanitation Surcharge Map; as the various coloured areas follow the subsurface infrastructure (and the corresponding roadways if you are also viewing the street map as a layer).

This dataset is based on 2014 information and will not be updated further. The model is based on a theoretical, worst-case scenario storm that has never occurred in the Edmonton area.
The LiDar used was a 5 meter grid system. LiDar has an accuracy of ? cm horizontally/vertically. Bare Earth LiDar was used in for this model surface.
This is a spline fit interpolations model. This is a 1D-1D model with 2D interpolations.The accuracy of the information provided in these data sets is plus or minus 10 cm vertically, and 10 cm horizontally.
The 100 year flood was based on the 2015 Edmonton 4 year Chicago storm event over 20 plus neighbourhoods. The data is a collection of the worst case scenario of model runs.
This is a common practice for Edmonton drainage models. These models are high level concept and projects determined from this data set will undergo finer, more detailed modeling.
These maps are a visual representation and intended to be used when prioritization of the best engineering solutions that are scheduled to be brought forward to Utility Council to mitigate future flooding in the City. The best engineering solutions are high level concept designs and require further modeling and design. At the time of the PDF release, November 9, 2016 there was no funding for any projects to be completed or for further design. Strategy will be brought forward to Utility Committee on June 7, 2017. Council will be determining funding and rate of project completion.
The Storm size used in these models are larger than Edmonton has historically seen. Historically, as seen in 2004 and 2012, only 4 neighbourhoods at a time were hit with the 100 year rainstorm event. With the cont
The Naming Committee approves names for municipal facilities, new neighbourhoods, parks and roads. This involves input from both City administration and citizens.
Indigenous people have lived in the Edmonton area for more than 10,000 years. Edmonton currently has an urban Indigenous population of over 50,000, the second-largest in Canada, and it is growing quickly. Reflecting this rich past and large population are over 100 place names in Edmonton with Indigenous roots. Many of the names are familiar, but not automatically associated with their Cree or Métis origins. This data set allows users to explore Edmonton by learning the Indigenous source of many of the place names found in our city, including streets, parks, neighbourhoods, walkways and more.
City of Edmonton promotes Low Impact Development (LID). Seven LID Best Management Practices are Bioswales, Bioretention, Box Planters, Rain Water Harvesting, Green Roofs, Naturalized Drainage Ways, and Permeable Pavement.
