May 2019: Water Safety, Utility Billing, & More

Reporting form for the water system of the City of Sutton
State law requires consumers of public water supplies to inspect their facilities not less than once every five years. Completing and returning the Cross-Connection Control Reporting Form fulfills that requirement. This form will help prevent the accidental contamination of our drinking water.

New Utility Billing Software!
Exciting new changes are going to be taking place soon at City hall as we transition to new utility billing software. What does this mean to you as a consumer? For the most part, the transition should be seamless. What changes will you see after the transition? There will be a few noticeable changes- first, your monthly bill will look a bit different. Second, with the new software we will no longer be able to offer two dates for our autopay customers, so all ACH files will be processed on the 25th of each month. Lastly, our paperless billing will change from us emailing your bill to you each month to us emailing you a notification that your bills are ready to view. After you initially set up your account, your bills will be available to view any time, day or night- no more emails lost in the spam folder or accidentally deleted!

Zoning Permits
With springtime officially here and the threat of snow finally a distant memory, many of us have started turning our thoughts to household projects. What steps do you need to take before you start on your project? If your project is going to be changing the footprint of your house garage, or property, you will need to apply for a zoning permit at City Hall. Zoning permits allow cigy officials to insure that residents are aware and follow setback regulations. A zoning permit must be submitted and approved by the City prior to work being done! After the location of the potential work is inspected and approved by the zoning administrator, a zoning permit will be issued. This zoning permit must be displayed on the property in a conspicuous place near where the work will be taking place. If you have questions about zoning permits, or whether your project needs a permit, pleasse call the zoning administrator at (402)773-4225.

Nuisance Properties
Starting soon, the Board of Health will be going around and assessing properties to see if they are in violation of any state laws and local ordinances. If they find a property to be in violation, they will contact the property owner and begin discussions to identify the violation and steps that will be taken by the property owner to correct the violation(s) and bring the property back into compliance. After a set amount of time, follow-up review of the property is conducted to determine whether the violation(s) have been adequately corrected or if further corrections are necessary.

What is a nuisance? A nuisance is either knowingly or unknowingly allowing a condition to occur which creates a public interferance, dangerous conditions, or a public health hazard. Some basic offenses include, but are not limited to: used or abandoned appliances, litter or waste material, filthy substances which may potentially contaminate water supplies, unsightly or abandoned buildings, animal manure and abandoned or non-working vehicles. A common nuisance many property owners are contacted about is grass and weeds over 12" on their lot or the adjoining right of way. Property owners who are in violation of the mowing ordinance will be contacted via letter and given 5 days to mow their property. if the property is not brought into compliance before the deadline, the city will mow the property and assess a mowing fee of $100 plus $100 per hour for the first mowing, $150 for the second mowing, and $200 per mowing for the third mowing. Grass clippings, leaves, garden waste, and tree limbs are not permitted to be disposed of in your trash toter.

April 2019: Water Safety, Dog Licenses, & More

Help Keep Our Water Safe
Nebraska's Safe Drinking Water Act requires the water systems to implement an on-going cross contamination control program. An important part of this program is public education. In this article we will explain what a cross connection is, what causes it, and how it can be prevented.

What is a cross connection? A cross connection occurs when there is an actual or potential physical connection between the public drinking water system and any possible sort of contamination. Sources of contamination include both high hazard materials, which can cause illness or death, and low or non-hazardous materials, which are mainly just a nuisance.

What causes cross connections? Cross connections can be caused by both permanent and temporary 'piping'. An example of a cross connection being permanently piped would be a drain on a water softener that is permanently piped into the sewer line. Hot tub, whirlpool, pool, and boiler fill lines are other examples. The most common example of a temporary piped cross connection is a common garden hose. It is estimated that 90% of all cross ccontaminations are caused by inappropriate use of garden hoses.

What are the consequences of cross connections?  The consequences of cross connections can range from dirty water to things as severe as serious illness or even death.

How can cross connections be prevented?  The best way to prevent cross connections is for each customer to examine the plumbing on their property and look for any cross connections. Anytime there is a possibility of a cross connection, there should be an air gap between the contaminate and the faucet. In some instances, such as with a garden hose, it isn't possible to have an air gap so proper backflow prevention devices should be installed on the supply faucet. In situations where extremely high hazards exist in a building or location, it is sometimes necessary to contain the enter system  from the public water supply with a backflow preventer.

How can I prevent cross connections and keep our drinking water safe?
1. Check your faucets to be sure all endpoints are above the flood level of the sink, basin, or other apparatus.
2. Protect faucet extensions by installing proper backflow prevention devices on all faucets capable of having a hose or other extension attached.
3. Check drain ines (fridge, water softeners, heat exchangers) to be sure there is an adequate air gap between the drain line and the floor drain or sewer line.
4. Never use unprotected faucets to fill non-drinking water containers such as water beds, wading pools, stock tanks, hot tubs, etc.

If you have any questions about cross connections or backflow prevention, please feel free to contact Kevin Finnegan at 402-469-9225.

March 2019: Water Backflow Preventers and More

Water Backflow Preventers
The City will soon be sending out surveys in regards to water backflow preventers. What are backflow preventers? They are devices installed in your water pipes that allows water to flow in one direction and never in the opposite direction. Think of it as a one-way gate allowing the City's public water to flow into your home, but stopping anything that tries to flow backwards into the main water supply. Why are backflow preventers important? Simply put, they keep the pollutants you use in and around your house (soap from sinks/showers/dishwashers, fertilizers/pesticides, wastes, and chlorine from pools/spas) from siphoning back and contaminating our drinking water supply. There are many different preventers that homeowners should inspect their plumbing to determine if they have any of these devices or assemblies installed. Preventing backflow is the responsibility of all homeowners, and the save water that results from installing proper protection benefits everyone. We are asking that everyone fill out and return the survey when it is mailed out.

Sidewalks in the business district should be cleared within 5 hours of cessation of the storm, or before 5:30 am in case of an overnight storm.

Weather Emergencies

Alley Right-of-ways
Alleys throughout the city allow access to the rear of properties to upkeep utility systems. In an emergency easy access to these utility systems in a timely manner is essential.
