Sewer Cleaning Notification
Posted Date:
June 13th through June 20th, 2017

We will be cleaning sanitary sewers in your area; North of Main Street and East of 5th Street from June 13th to June 20th. Starting about 7am and lasting most of the day.

Sewer lines can develop air pressure or a partial vacuum from the cleaning process. Usually any excess air pressure or vacuum will dissipate through your plumbing vents, but occasionally there are homes with inadequate plumbing vents (no vents, undersized vents or obstructed vents). In the case of inadequate venting air pressure could escape through your toilet, floor, sink, tub or shower drains causing water to splash out or, a vacuum could draw the water out of your fixture traps causing an unpleasant odor. To guard against this possibility please:

  • Cover all floor drains with plastic and place a weight on the plastic
  • Cover all toilets with plastic and close the lid on the plastic
  • If you should experience an unpleasant odor, run water into each drain to re-fill the traps.

Water and drains may be used as normal.

The cleaning of sanitary sewers is necessary to help prevent stoppages.

Thank you for your cooperation. Our apologies for this inconvenience.

If you have any questions, please call 785-258-2271
