Sewer Service

Sanitary Sewer Flushing

Beginning April 30, 2024

Sanitary sewer flushing is necessary to remove settled and accumulated material and to eliminate the potential for surcharging which can result in damage to property.

Public Works will be setting up equipment at manholes in the roadways throughout town to release pressurized water through the sanitary sewer main pipe, removing any buildup. As a result, a bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and toilets.

If you notice this occurring, we recommend that all toilet seats are closed and cover any floors drains during the flushing period. Also, in order to prevent sewer gases from migrating into the home, it is important to refill all plumbing traps by running the water in your sinks and floor drains after the work is complete.

For public works emergency after hours and on weekends, please call 780-984-9584.
