What is inflow?

Inflow is ground or storm water discharged by connection to the sanitary sewer through basement sump pumps, floor drains, roof leaders, foundation and yard drains, catch basins and condensate lines, etc. These types of connections to the sanitary sewer are illegal as dictated by the Town Sewer Code. Inflow sources contribute to high flows in the system, resulting in sanitary sewer overflows. Such overflows can have a detrimental effect on the ecology of the Long Island Sound, reduce water quality for recreation, and create unhealthy environmental conditions for Town residents.
