POWER OUTAGE ACTIONS
January 21, 2016
- IF YOU HAVE A STANDBY GENERATOR
- IF YOU HAVE A PORTABLE GENERATOR
- IF YOU USE WATER FORM OTHER SOURCES THAT GO INTO THE SEWER SYSTEM:
CONTACT Atwood Regional Water and Sewer District
330-343-2113 or long distance: 800-578-2553
Some home sewers drain into a grinder pump station and more than one home may drain into the same station. The pump stations do not operate without electricity. When these homes use water during a power outage, the sewage can back up into their home or the neighbor's home causing damage. The District performs a service to keep the grinder stations emptied but they require your input about which homes are using water. The District has portable generators that is used to pump these stations.
Thank you for your help.
