We can adjust the sewer for a pool or a hot tub. If you are filling either
one, please let us know before filling it so that we may give you a meter to
determine gallons used.

Taps fees do not include boring if needed - boring prices are based on

Sewer Information (Contractors)
Sewer Inspections (New Installations) are $50.00 per trip. Minimum of 3

This is an important notice concerning  the sewer system serving the
customers connecting to the town's sewer system.

1. It is the contractors responsibility to arrange an on-site meeting with a
representative from the Town Public Works Dept. to determine the
location of the STEP tank prior to plumbing rough in. Any locations
determined without our approval may not be acceptable. The tanks must
be located on a town approved site. Any plumbing connection problems
that may arise by contractors unauthorized actions are not the
responsibility of the town.

2. After a tank is set and the first inspection is approved, we will place
green flags around the tank. Please keep traffic off these tanks. It is not a
traffic designed tank. Any indication of traffic will warrant an additional
inspection fee. If any damage has occurred, that tank will be rejected and
service will not be allowed until repaired or replaced.

There is information at the Town Hall about the STEP systems. Please
contact the Public Works Department if you have any questions
concerning our system. We will be glad to assist you.
