We were just notified that Johnson Services will be in town Wednesday through Friday doing sewer cleaning. They will start with the Northeast section of town (3rd & Main & 41), once they complete that, they will start on the Northwest section of town.
Sewer Cleaning Notification (from Johnson Services)
Sewer lines can develop air pressure or a partial vacuum from the cleaning process. Usually, any excess air pressure or vacuum will dissipate through you plumbing vents, but occasionally there are homes with inadequate plumbing vents (no vents, undersized vents or obstructed vents).
In the case of inadequate venting air pressure could escape through your toilet, floor, sink, tub or shower drains causing water to splash out or, a vacuum could draw the water out of your fixture traps causing an unpleasant odor. To guard against this possibility please:
Cover all floor drains with plastic and place a weight on the plastic
Cover all toilets with plastic and close the lid on the plastic
If you should experience an unpleasant odor, run water into each drain to re-fill
Water and drains may be used as normal. The cleaning of sanitary sewer is necessary to help prevent stoppages.
