Sewage problem repaired at Village Hall

The repairs have been made to a clogged sewer pipe, which caused a backup earlier this week into Spring Lake Village Hall, said Roger Belknap, the village's interim public works director.

The east side of the building is again open to the public.

Belknap said there was a “massive clog” in one of the two lateral sewer pipes that serve the Village Hall. The clog was cleaned, the pipe replaced and two exterior cleanouts were added.

The problem was discovered late Tuesday afternoon. A portion of Buchanan Street was closed while the work was being done Wednesday and Thursday.

Crews will have to wait until weather permits them to patch the street and sidewalk, Belknap said.

A repair cost was not available.



I am truly sorry, that may have needed a second flush...


If the village feels the need to dispose of incriminating documents, I would suggest that they shred them instead of trying to flush them down the toilet. The village hall's sewage system was never intended to dispose of these types of documents.
