Sewer Work To Shut Off Service In Ocean City


If you live in Ocean City, expects some sewer disruptions starting next week. The town will begin the Cured-In-Place-Pipe method by adding trenchless pipes on the sanitary sewer main. Workers will put a hanger on your door if you live in effected areas that will tell you exactly when work will be done near you. When the work is being done around you, the town is asking you to not flush or drain any sinks or toilets and to turn off your sump pump if it discharges directly into the sewer. You should pour a cup of water in all sink traps- laundry tubs, basement sinks, etc. – that you haven’t used in a while to keep the smell out. Work will begin next Monday, March 20 and could begin as early as 8 a.m. in your area. When work is being done near you, expect a shut off for about 10 hours.
