Immediate Attention Requested

Residents of Karlstad are asked to direct their sump pump drainage into their yards and away from their houses. Please DO NOT drain sump pumps directly into floor drains and/or the city sewer system. This action is illegal and it is resulting in the overburden of Karlstad’s sanitary sewer system and lift stations. This may cause sewer backups!

Compliance inspections may be performed. This requires everyone’s immediate attention.
