Please be advised that the Village is flushing sewer mains throughout the community starting today June 24 through tomorrow June 25, to remove grit, sand, gravel and greases from the sewer mains. This is a preventative maintenance operation that helps to prevent sewer blockages, odour generation and premature wear on mechanical components.
This work will not affect the majority of property owners or cause disruption to service although there is a possibility that small spills, noise and odours may result in some homes. Here’s why: the sewer cleaning process uses a high pressure water jet to scour the pipe clean. When the water jet passes through the sewer main, the water pressure draws air through the pipes. The air movement has the ability to push out, or pull in the water and air held inside your plumbing and U-shaped traps and this includes your toilets, showers, sinks and floor drains.
We realize that the equipment can be noisy and may disturb residents. Sometimes this cannot be avoided and we appreciate your patience. We also appreciate your patience as some areas of some streets may be blocked by the equipment for short periods of time.
There are preventative measures you can take in your home. For more information read the full article below.
