InnServices Sewer Maintenance Flushing
Regularly scheduled maintenance of the sanitary sewer line will be taking place on St. Johns Road and Leslie Drive commencing May 4, 2020.
The maintenance flushing is necessary to remove accumulated material and prevents the sewer main from surcharging.
During the flushing:
It is recommended to keep all toilet lids closed during the work.
During this process a flusher truck will be setting up their apparatus at each manhole in the roadway and releasing pressurized water through the main pipe to remove any material.
A bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and toilets.
After the Flushing:
After the work is complete, it is important to run water into all sinks and floor drains to make sure that your plumbing returns to normal working order.
We ask for your patience during this preventative maintenance process.
Please note that NO wipes – including ones marked “flushable” – should be flushed down the toilet. They do not break apart and block pipes which can cause overflow, health concerns, environmental issues, and property damage.
For property owners, blocked pipes can lead to toilet and sink overflows and costly repairs. For municipalities, blocked pipes increase costs due to unscheduled maintenance and may result in increased water rates for all of us.
Please do your part and DO NOT flush “flushable” wipes.
