Disaster Response & Recovery
General Information - Saving Family Treasures - Salvage Procedures
"A pro-active rather than re-active approach to disaster preparation is the best means of mitigating damage from natural disasters or other forms of destruction.
However, despite systematic planning efforts, when emergencies do occur — whether they are small scale or catastrophic — they can be overwhelming. Information in this section provides information and guidance on recovering various types of record materials.
Please be Aware
- Always put health and human safety first before trying to save important collections, papers, books, or photographs.
- Make sure the area has been declared safe to enter by the appropriate authorities."

Here are some steps you should take...
Sewer Authority - Grinder Pumps
WARWICK SEWER AUTHORITY- In anticipation of the potential for power outages during the upcoming storm, the Warwick Sewer Authority is reminding customers with grinder pumps that, if power is lost, the pumps will have limited capacity and those customers should therefore limit water usage. Without power, the grinder pumps will be unable to discharge into the main sewer line.
WSA suggests that grinder pump owners prepare for a power outage by running an inside faucet for about 10 minutes or until the pump starts up. This will evacuate any wastewater stored in the pump and maximize storage capacity.
Continued reduced water usage will allow for use of the plumbing facilities for a longer period of time, hopefully until power can be restored. If there is an extended power outage, the Warwick Sewer Authority will issue additional information.
For sewer emergencies, please contact our on-duty operator at (401) 524-9327.
