If downspouts are connected to your sewer line leaving the house or
structure, this condition needs to be corrected by removing it. Why? First,
rain water uses up treatment capacity at the Wastewater Treatment Plant for
water that is relatively clean and in turn cost money to process these flows
needlessly. Second, the volume of water from rains in your sewer line may
cause basements to flood, problems with foundations and sewer backups into
houses or structures. Should you need advice as to how to correct your
situation, please contact our office.
When mowing your lawn, please blow clippings away from the street.
Doing this will help our storm inlets from plugging when it rains and helps
the water to get away.
Disposing of Household Wastes
The Water Environment Federation has an
easy-to-use chart to help determine the appropriate means of disposal
for home and garden hazardous wastes.
