Following recent heavy rains, the city of Sioux Falls is reminding people about sump pump rules.
Sump pumps cannot be discharged into the city's sanitary sewer system. Doing so could cause sewer backups.
It is a violation of City ordinances to discharge a sump line into the sanitary sewer system. The City has undertaken an active sump pump discharge inspection program. Potential fines can result from violations of the ordinance.
