Inflow and Infiltration
The city of New Hope is getting the word out about the problems of inflow and infiltration, or I and I, which is when storm or ground water enters the waste water system. It can overload the sewer system, causing costly backups into homes and buildings. Also, cleaning water that is already clean is expensive and that expense shows up on New Hope and other cities resident utility bills. Making sure your sump pump is properly installed and drains outside your home is one of the best solutions for I and I.
