Notice of Sanitary Sewer Overflow
Posted on 06/14/2019
Twp logoOn June 13, 2019 at 11:30am, Northville Township was made aware of a sanitary sewer overflow. Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are a release of untreated or partially treated sewage from a municipal sanitary sewer.

This sewer back-up was caused by a blockage (from tree roots and sanitary pad debris) and overflow entered a wooded park area at Pickford Meadow Park.

Crews were immediately displaced to the location and found sanitary sewage flowing out of the top of a sanitary sewer manhole near Fox Hollow Court. Equipment was utilized to remove the blockage and the sanitary sewer system was returned to normal that afternoon.

Private property was not impacted by this SSO. Notification has been sent to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and Wayne County Health Department.
