SUMP PUMPS
It is illegal to have your sump pump connected to the sanitary sewer without a permit. In the spring of the year, the ground is saturated and the flows at the Wastewater Facility are high. When we get a heavy rain, the water from the sump pumps will be more than the sanitary sewers can handle. This causes wastewater to back into basements causing damage and contamination. The water from sump pumps should be directed outside your homes onto the lawn.
