Do you know what happens to the sewer when you flush "unflushables"?
If you are flushing more than "toilet tissue" along with your bodily waste, it does NOT break down properly causing clogging of our sewers. Disposable wet wipes are made with cotton and require time to break down. Diapers should not be disposed into the sewer system. We suggest these items be disposed via the garbarge container.
When these items enter our sewage system and begin damaging our equipment, we have to replace these machines before the scheduled replacement period. This requires additional funds. Guess where those "additional funds" come from? "The customers using the sewer utility." Neither you, as a paying customer, or us, provider of services, want increase of rates until absolutely necessary.
Please be aware of what's going down the toilet(s) in your household and help educate your family members regarding this matter.
A Happy Sewer is a Free-Flowing Sewer. :)

Planning for New Water System and Towers
The City of Girard is preparing to start on a water project funded by a bond sale that will provide new water storage towers for the city and provide for the removal of the old ones. New electronically read water meters and eventually electric meters, will also be added. New meters will allow customers to be more accurately read and give real time information on water leaks and water usage on customer accounts in the future.
One concern that the city wants everyone to be aware of is when the new towers come on line they expect the water pressure to be better than before and in that regard some older lines both public and private may develop leaks. Everyone should check occasionally for leaky pipes and faucets after the new towers are built and in operation which should be about this time next year (June 2015).
Everyone should make sure there is a master service shut off valve for the water service in their home and where it is located just in case of an emergency. It could take some time for city crews to arrive to turn of service at the meter if there is a leak. Just a reminder that it is illegal for anyone to tamper with water meters, including turning on and off service at the meter.
