Plummers Environmental Services will be cleaning and televising sanitary sewer and storm sewer in the City beginning the week of June 25th. It is recommended that you leave the toilet seat down as there is potential that water may be vacuumed from drain traps allowing sewer gases to enter the residence. If this occurs, ventilate the area and flush the toilet or run water down the sink drain to prevent further release of gases. These issues are potential and may not occur in your residence but wanted sewer customers to be aware that this has occurred in the past in other communities. If this condition occurs in your home, it is likely due to a plugged or clogged sewer vent stack.
It is also recommended that customers pour water in their basement floor drains as these traps may dry out or and sewer gases can enter the residence.
