Sewer Department Questions and Answers
What items should not be flushed into the sewer system?
It is not recommended to flush household grease, oils or other fats into the
sewer system as they congeal and can clog either the household line or the
sewer main. The Village of Fonda requires commercial properties to have and
maintain a grease trap. Also, disposable wipes are not disposable in the sewer
system. They take years to decompose and can clog pumps and block lines.
Does the village allow storm water to enter the sewer system?
No. The sewer system is designed to accept only waste flow. Storm water via
roof drains, gutters, basement floor drains and sump pumped water must be
disposed of separately.
