SUMP PUMP CONNECTIONS IN SANITARY SEWER

Recent weather conditions have increased the sub-surface water levels throughout northern Utah. As such, sump pumps have been very busy keeping underground water from entering into our basements. It is important to note where we discharge our sump pump water. The sump water should be discharged outside of the home into the yard or into the storm water system, not the sanitary sewer. Riverdale City is part of the Central Weber Sewer District which has been severely impacted by illegal sump pump water being discharged into the sanitary sewer system. Also people downstream from our City experienced the worst....sewage flooding or overburden in their homes.

If you have a sump pump to remove groundwater from your basement, observe where the discharge goes. If you are unsure if your sump pump is connected correctly please call the City Building Department at 801-394-5541 ext. 1216 for a review of the system. Riverdale City will not issue fines to any citizen who requests an inspection of their sump pump with an intention of correcting any problems found. By making corrections we can all help the overburden of treating too much water being sent to the sewage treatment plant, which in turn prevents future treatment costs (paid by us as ratepayers) related to more equipment and facilities. This also helps other people downstream from us.
