50% Reimbursement for the Installation of an Overhead Sewer
During combined sewage overflows, rivers and streams carry diluted sewage that contains bacteria. Contact with this raw sewage can spread disease. The City encourages residents that have had sanitary sewer backups in the past to install a protective backup device or revise their plumbing to prevent sewer backups in the future.
The types of sewer backup prevention projects include the installation of an overhead sewer system or a backflow prevention device like the Clean Check valve. It also includes improvements to upgrade existing sewer backup prevention components (but would not include routine maintenance of existing systems or the installation of a sump pump).
The City offers a reimbursement program to assist homeowners with the cost of an overhead sewer installation by offering 50% reimbursement for eligible work up to $5,000. Homes must be built before 1998 to be eligible.
