[ARCHIVED] Notice to Sanitary Sewer Customers

Due to overloading, the sanitary sewer system is in jeopardy in your area.

“3-244 PROHIBITED DISCHARGES: STORM WATER, SURFACE WATER, GROUNDWATER, COOLING WATER, AND PROCESS WATER. No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged any storm water, surface water, groundwater, roof runoff, subsurface drainage, including interior and exterior foundation drains, uncontaminated cooling water, or unpolluted industrial waters to any sanitary sewer, except storm water runoff from limited areas, which storm water may be polluted at times, may be discharged to the sanitary sewer by permission of the Board of Public Works.

Storm water, other than that which is exempted herein, and all other unpolluted drainage shall be discharged to such sewers as are specifically designated as storm sewers, or to a natural outlet approved by the Board of Public Works and other regulating agencies. Industrial cooling water or unpolluted process water may be discharged, on approval of the Board of Public Works, to a storm sewer or natural outlet. The contributor of any identifiable discharge of polluted water to the sanitary sewer system shall be held responsible for reimbursing the City for such costs. The costs shall be determined by the Board of Public Works with the approval of the City Council. (Ref. 16-78, Code 1972)”

If your premise is in violation, this is your notice to immediately cease this illegal discharge and to permanently cease all violations under penalties expressed in Section 3-256 of the Fremont Municipal Code.
