Brunson Sewer Project
September 21, 2017
The Lowcountry Regional Water System has contracted with United Sewer Services, Inc. to clean and inspect sanitary sewer lines. This will improve the sewer’s performance and significantly reduce the chance for future sewer backups and related problems.
The cleaning process creates a vacuum in the sewer. This will not affect most homes, but some homes that have inadequate or partially blocked drain vents may be affected. The vacuum may cause “P-traps” (the S shaped bend in the pipe under sinks and drains) to be sucked dry. Should you notice a sewer smell resulting from this, run a little water in your drains to refill the P-traps.
We will attempt to locate a clean-out connection in your yard and will remove the cap while the cleaning process is being performed. You can assist us by locating and flagging its location ahead of time. We will replace the cap when we are finished in your area.
As a precautionary measure, we recommend that you put the toilet seat(s) down and cover floor, sink, shower, and bathtub drains on the days that the sewer cleaning is scheduled. This will minimize any possible splashing of the P-trap water in homes that are poorly vented.
*Residents of Brunson will be notified of the dates for this project before it begans.*
