Problems like this are so frustrating. I read a great article that included a basement waterproofing guide that could protect your basement against flooding. http://blog.resconsolutions.com/blog/bid/106119/Dont-let-your-finished-basement-become-a-finished-nightmare

Maybe if the flooding is a recurring event and the limitations of the existing infrastructure the apparent culprit then the assessment value of the property ought to be reassessed? Then a rebate on property taxes might help pay for some of the damages. Then the City could invoice the Fed./Prov. government during the budget hearings presenting their case of specific lost tax revenue due to obsolete or overloaded infrastructure. One of the most paradoxical cases is when a residence is flooded by a watermain break and have to pay the same water tax!!??
