[ARCHIVED] Wastewater Treatment Facility High Flows


The wastewater treatment facility is experiencing high flows. The public is encouraged to ensure all clear water flows are not discharged to the sanitary sewer system.

Sump pump water must not be discharged to the sanitary sewer. It is imperative that sump pump water be directed to your yard or another acceptable location. Remember to lay your sump pump hose out on a declining surface (board, snow drift, etc.) so it drains empty in case of freezing conditions. 

Removing sump pump water from the sanitary sewer saves valuable sanitary sewer capacity which is necessary to protect homes and the environment from a sewage discharge. Excessive sump pump discharge into the sanitary sewer could result in the sanitary sewer system flooding your basement and/or your neighbor's basements. 

The public's help in eliminating clear water flow from entering the sanitary sewer is greatly appreciated.
