With the possible approach of Hurricane Hermine, if there is a power outage we are asking everyone with a STEP SYSTEM to please limit the usage of water that goes into the wastewater system. If there is a power outage, the low pressure pump in the step system will not operate and it is possible there could be a backup into you or your neighbors home. Once the sustained winds reach 40 miles per hour our technicians will not be able to offer assistance until the winds abate below 40 mph.
If everyone is diligent in their use of water going into the wastewater system there should not be a problem; please cooperate. The emergency number remains 655-0615 to contact the Utility Department answering service.
