Fort Dodge cracks down on illegal sump pumps
October 30, 2008
The city of Fort Dodge will be cutting off water service
to residents who have their sump pumps illegally tied into the sanitary sewers in town. We offer many sump pumps
in our online store
, but we strongly encourage users to make sure they comply with all local laws and regulations when they install them. Discharging into sanitary sewers is generally not allowed, since it pumps lots of mostly-clean water into municipal wastewater systems
, rather than allowing it to flow naturally to creeks, streams, and rivers.
