During the week of June 3rd, a contractor will be performing sewer cleaning maintenance 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 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.
