The Engineering Department would like to remind residents that sump pump discharges must be maintained on their own property. Residents should not install extension pipes and discharge to a neighbor’s property or the street. Discharges to a neighbor’s property will cause a water impact to the neighbor’s property and the neighbor could file a civil impact case against you.
The Engineering Department recommends if you do install extension pipes on your sump pump discharge line, you should end it in the middle of your back or front yard so water can percolate into the ground before reaching your neighbor’s property. If you have questions please feel free to contact our Engineering Department.
