Sewer line clean-out and videoing will take place beginning on July 16th and will end approximately August 3rd. The areas that will be affected are sewer lines west of 300 East between 100 South to 500 North. At times, the pressure created while cleaning the lines can cause water in toilet bowls to gurgle or splash. In order to avoid this back splash, please put an old towel over the toilet, and keep the lid on your toilet closed during the dates that are listed above. Thank you for your cooperation regarding this matter.

Here are some things we ought to think about in caring for our lawns to help reduce the impact on storm water pollution:
- Yard Trimmings Management: Improper disposal of yard trimmings can lead to increased nutrient levels in runoff. Yard trimmings deposited on street corners may be washed down sewers and result in elevated nutrient loadings to surface waters. Proper management of yard trimmings and home composting can reduce the levels of nutrients in runoff and decrease overall runoff volumes through the addition of humas to the soil. Increased levels of humas enhance soil permeability, decrease erodibility, and provide nutrients in a less solible form than commercial fertilizers. Use organic, biodegradable, non-toxic pesticides. Use fertilizers or pesticides on the grass, not on driveways, or paved surfaces. Apply only 1/4 inch to soak lawn chemicals into the ground. DO NOT PUT LAWN TRIMMINGS INTO THE CANALS!!
