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.

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.
