Sump Pump Regulations

It is a petty misdemeanor for any owner, occupant or user of any premises to direct or allow any storm water, surface water, ground water, well water or water from industrial or commercial air conditioning systems to drain into the sanitary sewer system of the City. No rain spout, or other form of surface drainage and no foundation drainage or sump pump shall be connected or discharged into any sanitary sewer.


In certain locations where surface storm water discharge would create a safety hazard during freezing weather, connection to the sanitary sewer may be maintained from October 15 to March 15. In no case shall any connection to the sanitary sewer be  maintained from March 15 to October 15. Exceptions will be granted by permit on a case-by-case basis as determined by authorized city personnel.
