What is the Sump Pump Amnesty Program?
The Sump Pump Amnesty Program is to help single family homeowners who have a sump pump connected to the sewer system. The Amnesty Program will allow property owners to keep their sump pump but disconnect it from the sanitary sewer. The sump pump will be re-directed to an on-site infiltration system or a storm drain or swale. Any homeowners sump pump connected to the sewer system identified after the amnesty period and not listed in the Amnesty Program, will be potentially subject to penalties, fines, and all costs associated with correcting the sump pump system. Therefore, your timely cooperation with this program is imperative.
