We will be cleaning the sewer lines in your area
Dominion City April 8th to 12th         8:00am to 6:00pm
Emerson April 15th to 19th                8:00am to 6:00pm


In some cases where your vent might be plugged or the main lines are extremely dirty, water may blow out through toilets during cleaning operations, so would you please take some plastic and cover your toilet bowl (under the lid).
Put the plugs in your sinks and bathtubs and also in your basement sinks and tubs.
If you have a floor trap in the basement, it would be wise to put a piece of plastic under the cover and put something heavy on it.
After the flushing is finished and if you experience an odor in the house, run a bit of water in every sink that has a trap in it, flush the toilet, put some water into the floor trap in the basement and open the windows for a short period. The odor should disappear.
We encourage you to follow the above precautions in order to eliminate unnecessary cleanup which could occur.  If these precautions are not taken we may not accept responsibility for cleanup.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but the sewer system needs to be maintained periodically, to keep it running properly.
If you require any additional information, please contact the Municipal Office at 204-427-2557
