Connected To Sewers? Warwick Sewer Authority

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.
