Divert Other Water Wastes
. Don’t hook-up your sump pump, floor drains, eaves troughs, etc. to your sewer outlet
Read your sewer by-law.
Dispose of Chemicals and fuels at Approved Waste Sites
. Don’t put oil, gasoline, paint, varnishes, paint thinners, solvents, photographic chemicals, weed or insect killers, etc. down a drain. They can poison your Clarifier Tank, the whole collection system and treatment plant and possibly the Thames River.
Don’t get paranoid but:
These hazardous chemicals can be traced back to the individual Clarifier Tanks.
Toxic crap must no longer be disposed of irresponsibly. The stuff is NOT “out of sight; out of mind”. We’re drinking it!
