Water Leaks & Water Leak Detection The smallest of water leaks can affect your water usage and increase your quarterly water/sewer bill. Here are a couple of things to look for in determining if you have a leak in or around your home: 1) Any standing water around your home that is unusual 2) If you can hear water running in your basement 3) If your faucet is dripping or toilet is running (put dye in your toilet tank to see if it is running) If a leak occurs between the shut off valve in the homeowners front yard and the home it is the homeowners responsibility to have it repaired. From the shut off valve to the main valve is the Village's responsibility . Call the DPW as soon as possible if you think you have a leak. 315-778-9631.
Flushable Wipes It has come to our attention that many people are using flushable wipes. These wipes, although stated to be flushable, are NOT safe to be flushed into the sewer system. They do not break down appropriately and could cause damage to our pumps. The DPW department is asking all residents to please refrain from flushing any flushable wipes down your toilets.
