Sewer Use Ordinance (SUO)

Manhole
In 2003, the Town approved an ordinance geared primarily toward commercial utility customers that restricts the amounts of grease, sand solids and pollutants utility customers can empty into the municipal wastewater collection system. The ordinance requires some utility customers to intercept or treat the pollutants before they enter the Town’s wastewater collection system. Because pollutants can interfere with wastewater collection and treatment, by restricting the amounts of pollutants emptied into the system, the ordinance helps to protect water quality while maintaining an effective wastewater collection and treatment system and adhering with state and federal laws.
