This year we have had to clean out the sewer lift station more frequently and at greater cost than years prior. One lift station clean out is a roughly $5k charge for each event and is critical to keep the pumps in working order to avoid a spill that would bring significant fines.
Many items in the info below are found in the pumps routinely by our vendor as well as large items that may not be coming from household sources. In the past we’ve found open sewer clean-outs in the Village as well as at neighboring Surfside apartment areas. If you’re out walking the dog and see an open sewer pipe or clean-out please forward location/pics to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll notify Surfside or get it fixed pronto.
