SUMP PUMP OBSERVATION PROGRAM
The State of
The City recently developed a plan to comply with these mandates. This first phase of this plan involves observations at each residence/business to confirm that rainwater & groundwater are not entering the sanitary sewer system. Future phases will identify and address deficiencies within the sewer system itself. The observations will check for illegal sump pump and gutter connections to the sanitary sewer. At the same time, the observers will verify that illegal connections to the water system are not present in your residence/business.
