Sump Pumps Must Be Drained Outside April 1st

City Of Morris Colored Logo

Sump Pumps must be drained outside as of April 1st. The city allows sump pumps to be drained into the sanitary sewer during the winter, but in the spring when snow melts and rains start, the amount of water will overwhelm the city system. Your sump pump should be plumbed to allow for the changeover in the spring. You can drain your sump pump into your yard on even into the street. You should not block the sidewalk with a sump pump hose. In newly constructed streets with underground storm sewer, the city has been placing connections to drain your hose. You should not drain your sump pumps onto adjacent property.
