Notice to Residents
Ordinance 651.02: Obstructing of Streets of the Wheaton Municipal Code prohibits depositing leaves or grass clippings upon city streets. Depositing leaves or grass clippings upon city streets prevents proper drainage of storm water, obstructs storm drains and increases maintenance costs to the storm sewer system. Please respect city streets and refrain from this practice. Violation of any provision of this ordinance shall be a misdemeanor punishable pursuant to W.M.C. 005.05. Thank you.
Please take a moment to confirm that the sump pump in your home is not draining into the sanitary sewer systems. Sump pumps must be diverted to the curb or out to the yard.
Ordinance 410.06, Sec. 1 states: No person(s) shall discharge or cause to be discharged any unpolluted water such as storm water, ground water, roof runoff, surface drainage, or non-contact cooling water to any sanitary sewer.
Any person found in violation of this ordinance shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall be fined in the amount not exceeding $100.00 for each violation.
Sanitary sewer systems are designed to carry wastewater from toilets, dishwashers, sinks, and showers in homes and businesses. Water diverted by a sump pump, on the other hand, belongs in the storm sewer system or on the surface of the ground-not in the sanitary sewers. Improperly connected sump pumps allow unpolluted water to flow into the sanitary sewer system, significantly increasing treatment costs and equipment failures.
Your immediate attention to this matter is appreciated. Please contact our office if you have any questions!
** DO Not flush disposable/flushable wipes down the toilet! unlike toilet paper, these products do NOT break down once they are flushed. They can cause blockages in your on-site sewer, especially older pipelines that may have grease, roots, or other obstructions already existing. A repair of the on-site sewer line can leave the home/business owners with a very costly sewer repair. On a larger scale, when these products make their way into the public sewer system they collect together, causing very large obstructions and clogs in the main collector lines and get tangled in the pump stations requiring repair or replacement of equipment.
