The Association is responsible for processing it’s own waste water which means that we receive sewage from private residences and pump the same to our waste water treatment plant. The system operates 24 hours per day, 365 days a year using a total of 14 pumps to ensure the effluent reaches it’s destination.
In order for the pumps to operate efficiently they need to be free of heavy matter such as cloths, towels, mops and t-shirts – all of which we have found in the system when we have experienced a failure. Although we have prevention and redundant systems in place, failures do place an unnecessary burden on the system which can lead to further and larger problems.
To that end we would ask that all residents be mindful of what material is disposed of via the sewer system and avoid dumping anything that may not pass through a pump in the toilet or drain.
