Sewer Maintenance

You can help us to maintain the Hopkinton Sewer system and keep it working properly, protecting your ground water supplies and the surrounding environment.

The main reason for a sewer system is to protect water sources and the environment. A sewer system maintains a delicate biological balance to help ensure proper levels of gases, oxygen, pH and metals, along with the output of elements, such as, phosphorus, nitrogen and nitrates.

The sewer system should not be used as a disposal system for trash, paints, oils, grease, gasoline or other hazardous and flammable chemicals. Even water based latex paint can disrupt sewer alarms and clog measuring equipment.

Not only can these materials cause damage to the pumps and piping but they pose an immediate risk to sewer personnel through chemical interaction and the formation of explosive gases. These materials also pose major problems with the treatment plant when they arrive and they kill the "good" bacteria that is used to break down wastes.
