This is the time to get what you need done.
Be prepared for limited wastewater services. Lift stations collect all wastewater runoff from different areas of the county and pump that runoff to the wastewater treatment plant through force mains.
Lift stations need power to pump water to the treatment facility. If lift stations lose electricity, back-up into homes and businesses may occur.
