TOWN OF ARBORG
SEWER LINE FLUSHING
Gimli Septic Service Ltd. will be cleaning all sewer lines on Main St., WEST of Main St. and SOUTH of the Icelandic River starting on:
Monday, September 27th, 2023
IT IS IMPERATIVE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS BE TAKEN:
In some cases, where your vent might be plugged or the main lines are extremely dirty, water may blow up through toilets during cleaning operations. Please use plastic to cover your toilet bowl (under the lid) to prevent this.
Put the plugs in all sinks and bathtubs, including the basement.
If you have a floor trap, it is recommended you put a piece of plastic under the cover and place something heavy on it.
Once flushing is complete, if you experience an odour in the house, please do the following: run a bit of water in every sink that has a trap in it; flush the toilet; put some water into the floor trap and open the windows for a short period. The odour should disappear.
We encourage you to follow the above precautions in order to eliminate unnecessary cleanup which could occur. If these precautions are not taken, the Town may not accept responsibility for cleanup.
The contractor will start on the West side of Town, moving towards Main Street and then across the Icelandic River. It may take up to five (5) days to complete the work.
We are unable to predict how long this maintenance will take, nor when they will be on your street.
Businesses and residences on River Road, between Main Street and Benson Street, may be affected during this time and might also wish to take these precautions.
We apologize for the inconvenience, however to continue operating properly, the sewer system must be periodically maintained. If you need any further information, please contact the Town Office at 204-376-2647.

Chief Administrative Officer
