>Residents dealing with wet or damp basements must not discharge collected
water into the Village’s sanitary sewer collection system. Individuals
pumping out basements are reminded to direct the discharged water to the
street gutter, not into toilets or slop sinks. Connecting sump pump
discharges directly to sanitary sewer lines is unlawful.
Overwhelming the Village’s sanitary sewer collection system with water from
flooded homes could cause malfunctions at the waste water treatment plant,
or at local pumping stations. This could in turn cause effluent discharges
to the environment.
Unlawful sump pump connections may be reported to 201-670-5500, x209.
