UPDATED GRINDER PUMP SCHEDULE - 11/4/2021

Ginder Pump Schedule

TO EVERYONE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UDERSTANDING THIS SUMMER WITH THE WORK BEING DONE ON THE SIDE ROADS. WE RECEIVED MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THE HARGER UTILITY CREW GUYS AND WE VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT.  ANYONE WHO HAS NOT HAD THEIR PROPERTY RESTORED YET PLEASE BE ASSURED, IT WILL GET DONE.  THE RESTORATION CREW GOES THROUGH ONCE A ROAD IS COMPLETELY FINISHED. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE.  

The first step for homeowners is when the Harger team sets a flag for grinder pump location, please verify with the Harger crew that placement is approved or move the flag to a better location.  It is best to discuss this change and any other information with Harger. A second crew installs the lateral line to each grinder pump and the main line.  Restoration will follow. Connection will happen when the Wastewater Treatment plant is completed and operational.

Connection fees are not due until you are invoiced and the service is provided.

ALL LAKE CAREY RESIDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO CONNECT TO THE PUBLIC SEWER SYSTEM, PLEASE REFER TO THE MANDATORY CONNECTION ORDINANCE APPROVED & ADOPTED BY BOTH TOWNSHIPS 

NOTE: Reserve taps may still be purchased but, will now be subject to a monthly fee to hold capacity at the WWTP.
