Green up your Lawn - Not the Lakes!

The choices you make in caring for your lawn can directly affect water quality. Whatever is washing off your yard, and into the street, can pollute local waters. That includes lawn fertilizers, grass clippings, pet waste, and tree leaves - all sources of phosphorus, the nutrient that turns lakes green with algae.

As a reminder, keep grass clippings, leaves, pet waste and fertilizer off the streets and out of storm drains. Thank you for your help in keeping our lakes blue and beautiful!

Fairmont Residents who have a sump pump must discharge it outside during the period of April 1 to November 15. It is a violation of City Code Section 25-841 to discharge a sump pump into the sanitary sewer.

Leaving your sump pump connected to the sewer is not only a violation of City Code, but can lead to
💵 added wastewater treatment costs
🏠 high flows potentially leading to sewage backup in basements
⚡ overloading the treatment facility, leading to permit violations and the need for expansion to handle high flows

Please direct questions to Brady Powers, Water/Wastewater Superintendent, at 507-235-6502.
