Summit County Department of Sanitary Sewer Systems (DSSS) has identified your neighborhood as an area that has sanitary sewers with an excessive amount of clean water (stormwater and groundwater) entering into the sanitary sewer system during wet-weather. DSSS is starting a project with the objective of removing clean water from private properties. All cost to review and fix homes will be funded by DSSS. This project will help reduce the probability of sewage overflowing into storm ditches, storm sewers, and backing up into basements during wet-weather.
CT Consultants has been hired to perform the reviews of each home that will include televising your sanitary lateral while we add colored water down each of the clean water sources (downspouts, yard drains, driveway drains, sump pumps, storm ditches, etc). Findings from these reviews will be used to develop an individualized plan for each home that will redirect the clean water away from the sanitary sewer.
