The City of Ottawa has opened an online service where flood victims can submit requests for remediation work to their flood-damaged homes.

The online application opened Saturday and is available to homeowners who need to do cleanup inside and outside their homes.

The city said it won't officially begin recovery operations until flood waters have receded further, which is expected to occur sometime next week.

At that time, there is expected to be a renewed call for volunteers.

Each request will be assessed, and will be responded to based on need, rather than a first-come, first-served basis. 

The work will be completed by volunteers under the supervision of trained leaders, and can range from the removal of sandbags to external debris.

If help is needed inside the home, homeowners are asked to submit a seperate online form.

The city asks residents to assess the damage inside their homes before submitting the form.

Online requests are preferred, but anyone without internet access can call 1-844-547-2664.
