Worthington Public Utilities would like to remind our customers that the discharge of sump pumps into the sanitary sewer system is a violation of City Ordinance and is subject to a fine. The discharge of sump pumps into the sanitary sewer system creates excessive flows that may exceed the design capacity of the sewer system and cause bypassing of the treatment process. Sewer backups and the flooding of neighboring basements are also possible. Please direct all sump pump discharge water to a suitable outdoor location.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Please call 372-8680 with any questions.
