The Town of Plainville is addressing a problem with excess water entering the sanitary sewer system, which overwhelms the capacity of the system leading to basement back-ups and sanitary sewer overflows that could lead to a potential health hazard. The goal is to identify areas where stormwater and groundwater are entering the sanitary sewer system so that we can plan system improvements.
Should our inspectors find that your sump pump is connected to the sanitary sewer, we will work with you to determine a plan that will allow you to disconnect from the system voluntarily.
We strongly recommend that you participate in the study to prevent a potential public health and safety issue, as well as to reduce the long-term impact of extraneous stormwater and groundwater on our sanitary sewer system.
