IMPORTANCE NOTICE

from The Village of Capac D.P.W.

 

Michigan Pipe Inspection and Tri County will be televising and cleaning the sewer mains throughout the entire city starting October 3rd through the end of the year. There is nothing required of you to do, however, it is recommended that you keep your toilet lids closed, floor drains covered, and check your sewer vent pipes for blockage, as a precaution on your part. When a sewer vent pipe is clean from blockages, then the sewer jetting does not have any effect on your home. The pressure from the sewer jetting will go out through the vent pipe and not cause any problems in your home. If the sewer vent pipe is blocked, then you could experience water and/or sewage coming up from your toilets and drains in your home. A blockage could be caused by any number of things, including leaves, animals or snow. 

The Village is NOT responsible for any damages or cleaning inside residencies that may result from blocked vents and or the cleaning process.

There are a couple ways you may check your vent pipes:

  • Open the faucets at the tub and sink nearest the roof vent pipe. Go on the roof with a flashlight and visually inspect the roof vent. If the vent is clear, you should be able to hear the water running.
  • When it's cold outside, you can run hot water inside your home and simply check to see if you see steam coming out of the roof vent.

If you find the roof vent is blocked, run a hose down the vent pipe to flush out the debris. The water will run down through the pipe and out the sewer line. If the vent pipe begins to fill with water, you have a major blockage and should contact a licensed plumber.

After the sewer jetting is done, if you experience a smell coming from inside your sinks or toilets, run water down them. This will fill your traps with water again, and should fix the problem.

You may also experience discolored tap water that is the result from Tri County filling their water trucks for the sewer cleaning. If you experience this run water out of all taps until it is clear.

 

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Capac DPW at (810)-395-4355
