ANNUAL SANITARY SEWER CLEANING UNDERWAY

Have you experienced water splashing out of your toilets recently? The splashing water is caused by the water cleaning system used during sanitary sewer maintenance. The water cleaning system creates increased air pressure within the sewer piping, causing water to sputter out of toilets. Close the lid of your toilet to help reduce the issue. Johnston Public Works Sewer Division has contracted with CIT Sewer Solutions to perform routine maintenance on our community's sanitary sewer system to ensure everything flows smoothly and provides better and more reliable service for customers. This safe and effective cleaning method will extend the sewer system’s life. During this process, they will clean 433 sanitary manholes and over 88,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer. Maintenance on the sanitary sewers is predicted to wrap up in the next few weeks.
