Due to the severity of winter, the Department of Public Works is experiencing an over-whelming amount of frozen storm and mini storm sewer lines. If you are experiencing issues with your sump pump, you will probably want to discharge your sump pump to your backyard. Please keep in mind that it is illegal to run it to the sanitary sewer. Also, please be respectful of your neighbors in positioning your discharge hose. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks.
