Selected areas of the City's sewer system has been selected for investigations for sources of "infiltration" and "inflow". This work is a requirement of the City's Consent Decree. The areas were selected based on flow meter installations, and the screening information they provided.
Beginning Monday - July 25, 2016, property inspections will be taking place on randomly selected properties, throughout those sections of the City in the SSES.
Individual property inspections will be short duration (~20 minutes).
Customers & property owners who receive such notifications of property inspections should not be alarmed. This is a part of a sewer system investigation in order to understand if and where infiltration and inflow is getting into the sewer system, and is not a search for wrong-doing. For more information on this and related SSES investigations phases, see the DPW Wastewater Division's webpage on the City's website.
