The town-owned grinder pumps are placed in an easement to provide access for maintenance and service. It is not advisable to plant flowers or shrubs or place such items as fences, decorative pilings, fish ponds, etc. within close proximity of the grinder pump, as damage to the underground electrical or piping systems may occur.
Electrical power and alarm wires are buried under the ground between the control panel and the tank. Before digging in the area, call Water / Sewer at (716) 874-0490 to have a town employee locate the lines.
With your cooperation, your low-pressure system will provide many years of safe, reliable service. Please take a few moments to read the following information to insure the proper functioning of your pump.
