The Town asks residents NOT to pipe their sump pumps or water softeners into the sewer system. By doing so, a property owner is increasing the flow which in turn increases the cost that the sewer community is responsible for. The rainwater creates infiltration and the water softeners promote the deterioration of the pipes.
