Peru plans to work with homeowners to prevent more sewer backups.

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2013

The filthy, watery mess that backed up into your basement almost three weeks ago hasn’t been forgotten in Peru.  After developing an action plan, Peru officials have two ideas for preventing more backups.

Mike Perry with Chamlin and Associates says after that after televising the sewer lines where the problems occurred they found blockages and places where water was getting in. He says they have a program to remove the blockages and eliminate the extra water getting into the sanitary sewers.

They’ve also created a program to work with homeowners to modify their basement plumbing to create separate sewers for footing tile ground water and sanitary sewer flow.
