FALL SEWER CLEANING
During the week of October 16-20, a contractor will be performing sewer cleaning maintenance in Ladd. 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 your basement floor drains. In the case of inclement weather, cleaning will extend into the following week. Thank you for your help.
