Do's and Don'ts for Hide-A-Way Lake Sewer Systems

Sewage from your property passes through several pumps on its way to the treatment facility. Properties in Hide-A-Way Lake have a dedicated Grinder Pump with special considerations (Download PDF Grinder Pump Manual ). It is important that you take care not to put items into the system that would be damaging to the pumps. Once the sewage reaches the treatment plant, it is put through a series of carefully balanced chemical, mechanical, and organic processes before the cleaned water is returned to the environmment. Introducing chemicals or unnatural materials into the system can upset or bypass these processes. So it is important to be careful about what you put into the system.
