Please note that there is no exact route or timeline. Occasionally during sewer cleaning, air pressure builds in the sewer line causing water to splash out of toilets, sinks and drains. Please take the following precautions to prevent water damage in your home:

  • Close lids and cover toilet bowls when not in use.
  • Insert drain plugs in all sinks and bathtubs when not in use.
  • Remove all floor mats in bathrooms.
  • Place an old towel around base of toilets.
  • Cover all basement floor drains.

Sewer cleaning on rare occasions may leave an odor in the home. If so, please run some water down all sink and bathtub drains, flush toilets, pour a pail of water into each basement floor drain and open your windows. After a short time, the odor should disappear.

12. The splash pad continues to be in operation. Any concerns can be reported by calling 204-388-4600 Ext. 111.
