PUBLIC NOTICE: Sewer Cleaning in NE Goodland
The City of Goodland will be cleaning sanitary sewers in the northeast portion of town (north of 8th Street, east of Caldwell) through next week. The cleaning of sanitary sewer is necessary to help prevent stoppages.
Sewer lines can develop air pressure or a partial vacuum from the cleaning process. Usually any excess air pressure or vacuum will dissipate through your plumbing vents, but occasionally there are homes with inadequate plumbing vents (no vents, undersized vents or obstructed vents).
In the case of inadequate venting air pressure could escape through your toilet, floor, sink, tub or shower drains causing water to splash out or, a vacuum could draw the water out of your fixture traps causing an unpleasant odor. To guard against this possibility please:
- Cover all floor drains with plastic and place a weight on the plastic
- Cover all toilets with plastic and close the lid on the plastic
- If you should experience an unpleasant odor, run water into each drain to re-fill the traps
Water and drains may be used as normal. Thank you for your cooperation, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
