Hydrant Flushing will be taking place September 17th to the 21st. This may cause some discoloration and pressure surging which is normal during this process. You may want to flush your pipes with running water to clear the discoloration.
Attention Fountain City Residents and Businesses
UPDATE 7/25/18: Bins will not be picked up today as noticed. The recycling contractors negotiated keeping the same bins as you have now. To clarify: the bins will not be picked up, you will keep them and recycling pick up will continue as normal however with a new company.
The City of Fountain City is changing contractors for recycling services this July. All recycling bins and carts will be picked up July 25th, 2018 when recyclables are collected. New bins and carts will be issued by Waste Transport prior to the first scheduled pickup in August.
The new recycling bins are owned by Waste Transport and property owners are responsible for carts and bins provided. You will be charged for any lost, stolen or broken carts or bins. If you are not using recycling bins or carts please contact city hall to arrange for pick-up.
A reminder that pick-up dates are circled on the recycling calendar and bins/carts are to be put out at curbside by 7:00am to ensure you are not missed. For more information on recycling please click here.
Please help our Waste Water Treatment Plant run as smoothly as possible by disposing of non-flushable items properly. Below is an example of what causes our sewer lines to backup and creates pump issues. In this image you are seeing a plugged pump from rags and medical supplies. This is very hard on our system and can cause a good deal of damage.
Every property owner connected to the city system contributes to possible problems and could be a potential victim for those problems. Putting the wrong things down the drain can cause sewer backups, damage to sewer system or sewer releases into the environment.
It’s pretty simple what should go down the toilet, human waste and toilet paper. That’s it. Here is a list of items to keep out of the toilet that are common problems:
- disposable diapers
- tampons and tampon applicators
- sanitary napkins
- cotton balls and swabs
- cleaning wipes of any kind
- facial tissue
- bandages and bandage wrappings
- medical supplies of any kind
- automotive fluids
- paint, solvents, sealants and thinners
- poisons and hazardous waste
- pet poop
- unused medications
- fats, oils or grease
We kindly ask for your patience while these projects move forward and will update on this website as more information becomes available. We look forward to cleaner street shoulders and some brand new pavement!
Please stay tuned for announcements on auditions for this summers performance.
