  • Sewer Maintenance
    building sewer is the cause of the sewer backup The emergency crew will immediately attempt to notify the property owner or resident of that fact If a blockage in the private building sewer is the cause of the sewer backup it is the responsibility of the property owner to clear the blockage The private building sewer extends from the interior plumbing of the building to where the pipe connects to the public sewer main most frequently located at the center of the street There are various private firms listed under Sewer cleaners in the yellow pages who are equipped to remove the blockage from your private building sewer If it is determined that the sewer line has broken or collapsed the property owner should contact an excavating contractor to make repairs How to prevent sewer backups Do not plant trees or shrubs over the private building sewer The roots of trees particularly Silver Maple and Willow trees will seek out the joints of the sanitary sewer and eventually clog the pipe Do not put large amounts of vegetable waste such as pea pods and tomato skins through the garbage disposal at one time Even though these materials will go through

  • GPS
    trucks Our crews literally had to get out of the vehicle and put the book on the hood to use it Not the best solution when it is raining windy or snowing outside The process of updating twenty three sets of books was very time intensive The update process required all of the nearly 2 000 original map sheets to be printed copied collated and assembled in the map books Unfortunately by the time we get the book updated and out to the field it was already outdated by three to four weeks That s weeks of missing corrections or additions to our maps that will not be added until we do another complete update The procedure for finding the correct page in these books was by using an index sheet and finding which quarter section you needed Often the information that you wanted to look at was at the edge of that map sheet you just found so it was likely you would have to flip between two three or even four map sheets to find the necessary information Another disadvantage was the inability to see water and sewer information in relation to each other on the same page In the early 90 s the decision was made to create the water and sewer maps using computers instead of drawing these maps with pen and ink Microstation was chosen as the computer aided drafting CAD software allowing us to draw and link information to a database Our GPS equipment per vehicle consists of one tablet computer one GPS antenna receiver one copy of the GeoLink software and a daylight readable 15 or 17 inch touchscreen monitor The tablet PC can be undocked and taken into the field if needed The operator can choose between a water project sewer project

  • Outdoor Tips
    damp again Limit lawns to functional spaces so you never need to worry about watering or mowing those frustrating tight spots again Choose the right plants Native plants require little to no watering because they have adapted over thousands of years to the local climate Mulch your plant beds trees and gardens Mulch helps retain soil moisture which reduces the need for irrigation Let the grass grow Keep the lawn at 2 5 inches and never remove more than 1 3 of the leaf tissue during any one mowing MORE LAWN WATERING TIPS Irrigate in the morning to minimize evaporation in the hot afternoon sun and wind Regular evening lawn watering is not recommended because it can lead to grass disease problems Do a deep soak one time each week instead of light watering several times a week Once a week watering promotes deep root growth and reduces water loss Purchase an automatic timer for your lawn sprinkler Set it to automatically shut off after a desired application Use a drip hose to water planning beds and gardens A drip hose get the water where the plants need it at the roots OTHER TIPS Stop leaks Replace leaky hoses nozzles
