Ada, MN — The City of Ada Public Works is sending out their annual reminder that sump pumps must be switched to discharge outside the home no later than this Thursday, April 1st. During the winter months, sump pumps are allowed to temporarily discharge into the sanitary sewer system to prevent freezing. However, now that freezing is no longer an issue, Ada Public Works Director says they must discharge towards your lawn or street to prevent added stress on the city sanitary sewer system, or they could face fines.

Again if you have questions, contact Ada Public Works at 784-5537 or Ada City Hall at 784-5520.
