SEWER BACKUP REPORTING
The Village of Ladd is in the process of implementing a CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations, and Maintenance) Plan for the Sanitary Sewer Collection System. In order to improve the ability to identify where basement backups and overflows occur, a system of record keeping will be implemented. For each complaint or notification received by the Village concerning a sanitary sewer overflow or a basement backup with the potential of being caused by issues with the Village’s collection system, a report will be generated. A form has been created for the purpose of keeping these records. Residents are encouraged to print, complete and submit the form to the Village Clerk’s office when they experience a sewer backup event. Forms are also available in the Village Clerk’s office. For more information, contact Superintendent Doug Englehaupt @ (815) 894-2806.
