2019 Sewer Main Cleaning

print-logo August 02, 2019

Residents are advised that the Sewer Main Preventative Maintenance Program is now in effect.

The Municipal sanitary and storm sewers and catch basins will be cleaned and inspected using CCTV cameras throughout the urban area of Port Hope until approximately September 27, 2019 (with the possibility of a timeline extension).

Residents can prepare for this maintenance by ensuring that all P-traps have water in them and that toilet seats are left down. Some residents may experience bubbling in toilets as the flushing truck is working in front of their property. This is normal and residents should not be alarmed if this occurs.

In the unlikely event that sewage issues arise during this cleaning program, residents can contact the Development Team Office at 905.885.2431 to report the concern.
