Warmer Temperatures and Snowmelt

With the recent volume of snow received by the Village and warmer temperatures in the forecast, residents should prepare for the snowmelt. This amount of snow, paired with the frozen ground, may lead to drainage issues. Residents should consider having sump systems inspected for operation. If residents do not have a pump, temporary overland water pumps may be useful to pump water from the rear yard to the front yard (pumps must discharge no closer than five feet from the property line). Additionally, residents with check valve systems may want to have their valves inspected to ensure proper operation prior to the snow melting.
