Your Responsibilities

Do Not Flush

Putting the wrong things down the drain can damage the sewer system and cause sewer backups in your home. The only things you should ever flush down a toilet are the “Three P’s”, poo, pee, and paper (toilet paper). Even though some products such as wipes claim to be flushable, they are not. Here is a list of some things to keep out of the toilet:

  • Disposable diapers
  • Tampons and applicators
  • Sanitary napkins
  • Cotton balls and swabs
  • Cleaning wipes of any kind
  • Facial tissue
  • Bandages
  • Automotive fluids
  • Paint, solvents, and thinners
  • Poisons and hazardous waste
  • Unused medications
  • Fats, oils, and grease

Grinder Pumps

If your home is served by a grinder pump, there is important information to be aware of. In the case of a power failure, your pump will not function. Keep water usage to a minimum. If your grinder pump alarms due to failure, please press the silence button on the bottom of the unit. The light will remain red until serviced by a technician. For service, call The District at (877) 354-9090.

Your Responsibility

The District is responsible for maintaining and operating the water/sewer flow distributed/removed to and from your house by our distribution lines. As a homeowner, you are responsible to maintain/repair the water and sewer service lines in your home extending to where it connects to our water/sewer mainline, located at the road right-of-way. Always remember to call 811 before you dig on your property.
