please do not flush the following items:

These items can damage the pumps
and or controls causing unnecessary
expense.  NOTE: Illegal sump pump
connections cause
our collection system to be
overburdened.  Contact us for questions.

to pump water from a crawl space,
footer or any groundwater
run off, Make sure it is NOT being
discharged into the sanitary sewer.
