What are the city's requirements for sump pumps?
If you have a sump pump in your basement, please connect it properly to prevent sanitary sewer backups and unnecessary costs associated with the treatment of storm water in the sanitary sewer system. City code requires hooking up to a drain tile system where available. In all other areas, the sump pump must be hard plumbed and pump water outside to the lawn or street and not into your floor drain, laundry sink or shower stall. Sump pump discharge may not be directed onto a neighboring property. Periodic inspections are performed to ensure compliance with the sump pump ordinance. Illegal connections to the sanitary sewer system are subject to a $75 monthly fine until corrected.
