"Important Information - Grinder Pumps"
As a notice to our new residents and a reminder to those who have been around awhile, when your electric power is OFF to your house, your grinder pump will not operate. You must avoid using water during a power outage as the grinder pump tank will only hold about 45 gallons of wastewater and continued use of water may cause wastewater to back up into the house or flow into the yard through the vent pipe. If the electric power goes out, the City will probably have water, HOWEVER, you must keep water usage to a bare minimum. Also, the maintenance department has advised us that we are experiencing problems with grease build-up in the grinder pumps and sewer lines. The best way to dispose of household grease is to put it out with the garbage rather than pouring it down the drain. This will help to eliminate the grease build-up in the sewer system.
