This is an update from the City of Reading Department of Public Works.
In the past, large volumes of storm water and groundwater entering the sewage system from sump pumps have overwhelmed the City of Reading’s sanitary sewer system, which may cause back-ups into basements and private property.

As we are preparing for severe rainstorms and spring thaws, we ask our residents to check their sump pumps to ensure they are not connected to the sanitary sewer but are draining to either a storm drain or their yard.

Your health may be impacted if a sewage backup occurs in your home. So, we thank you for your cooperation in helping us ensure the safety and protection of Reading residents.

If you need help determining where your sump pump is draining to or if you have additional questions or concerns, please call City Hall at (517) 283-2604.
