Peru Searching For Sewage Backup Solution

Posted by wlpo on June 4, 2013

A fix to sewage backups in Peru homes won’t be free but homeowners won’t be left with the total bill.

The Peru City Council last night approved a plan to reimburse homeowners that have their home’s footing tile separated from the sanitary sewer and who also install a sewer ejector.  The city will pay for half or up to 3 thousand dollars of the cost.  Homes with backup problems are given top priority.

Up to 100 homes in Peru could be reimbursed under the new program.  Sewer improvements have to meet city specifications and be done by a licensed plumber.
