☷ West Fargo North Dakota - City of West Fargo Public Works urges residents to switch sump pumps to discharge outside 09 May 2022

West Fargo , state North Dakota

   Due to the recent rainfall , the Public Works Department is experiencing an overload in the sewer system and is urging residents to switch sump pumps to discharge outside as soon as possible . Sump pumps discharging outside help to ensure the sewer system is not overwhelmed during major rain events , which can lead to sewage backup in properties and partially treated sewage water emptying into the Sheyenne River .  
   All
   sump pumps
    in West Fargo must switch to discharge outside starting Friday , April 15 , 2022 . This regulation includes properties with sump pump variances for winter months . Properties found not in compliance with this ordinance will be notified and charged $100 per month until brought into compliance .
   The City of West Fargo requires this action to meet the U . S . Environmental Protection Agency requirement to have separate stormwater and sanitary sewer water systems .  
   Sump pump water diverted outside should drain away from buildings to prevent recirculation . The City recommends discharging into backyards and coordinating with neighbors to ensure sump pump water is not causing drainage concerns .  
   Additionally , sump pump drainage hoses cannot cross sidewalks or positioned in a way that allows the water to pool on sidewalks . Both scenarios are safety hazards and considered
   illegal in the City of West Fargo
    .  
   Residents must obtain
   a sump pump variance
    and pay a $5 monthly fee year - round to discharge water from the sump pump into the sanitary sewer system during winter months . The variance is only valid from Oct . 15 to April 15 . The $5 fee is paid through the property’s utility bill . The sump pump water must divert outside during the remainder of the year .
   If you have questions or concerns about discharging your sump pump outside , please contact Public Works at ( 701 ) 515 - 5400 .
