The District has once again solved some infiltration and problems that lead to extra clear water flows that were coming from a private development on the west end of the lake. This will help reduce flows and costs. HOWEVER, now is the time the illegal sump pumps show their flow and we see our flows jump up. We can tell which homes are doing this and we are going to be implementing heavy fines to the residents that have their sump pumps hooked up to the sanitary sewer. I strongly recommend having a plumber change your connection, or fix it yourself. Sump pumps are to drain this clear water to the outside of your property to the lawn area or storm sewer NOT the sanitary sewer.
