News & Announcements


The City of Fairmont is asking all residents to make the normal spring change with their sump pump discharge if they haven’t already done so. We know that many were concerned that freezing temperatures would cause damage to pipes and dangerous conditions on streets and sidewalks so pumps were not transferred to outside as requested in March.

Our sanitary sewer system is currently experiencing extremely high flows due to snow melt and high water table. Pumps are barely able to stay ahead of the flow and it is possible that we may experience backups into residential basements.

Once again; please change your sump pump drain to outside, rather than discharging into the sanitary sewer or floor drain. Thank you!!
