Disconnect your sump pump from the sanitary sewer system.

May 3, 2024

An urgent message from our Public Works Director, Todd Uhl.

With the recent rainfalls flows in the sanitary sewer system flows have increased substantially (nearly doubled). The system is starting to show signs of stress and increased possibility of sewer back up. You can help reduce this risk for yourself, your neighbors, and the city by making sure that your sump pumps are NOT discharging into the sanitary sewer system.

See also this excerpt from City Code 95.04:

No person shall do, or allow, any of the following:

  1. Surface Run-Off or Groundwater. Connect a roof downspout, sump pump, exterior foundation drain, areaway drain, or other source of surface run-off or groundwater to a building sewer or building drain that is connected directly or indirectly to a public sanitary sewer.
