Sewer Cleaning

During the week of June 8th, a contractor will be performing sewer televising and cleaning in the highlighted areas shown on the map.  This cleaning is done with a low pressure, high volume water jetting machine. Periodically, problems can be experienced where the pressure in the sewer line forces water out of toilet traps in homes. As a measure to keep this water contained and prevent any damage, we are asking residents to keep their toilets flushed, drape a towel over the rim and close the lid and seat onto the towel. Also, cover basement floor drains. In the case of inclement weather, cleaning will extend into the following week. Thank you for your help.
