Contractors are Working on Sanitary Sewers in Jefferson Hills
This is the notice that RedZone Robotics will be providing to residents

Memo from Jefferson Hills Municipal Authority

The township has contracted with a company named RedZone to perform preventative maintenance by cleaning the sanitary sewer.  We will be performing sewer cleaning and inspection over the next two (2) working days.

The cleaning process causes a vacuum in the sewer.  This will not affect most homes, but some homes may be affected that have inadequate or partially blocked drain vents.  The vacuum may cause “P-traps” (the little S shaped bend in the pipe under sinks and drains) to be sucked dry.  Should you notice a sewer smell resulting from this, run a little water in your drains to refill the P-traps.  It is recommended that you shut the water valve off to your toilet(s), put the toilet seat(s) down and cover floor drains with car mats on the days that the sewer cleaning is scheduled.  This will minimize any possible splashing of the P-trap water in homes that are poorly vented.


Thank you for your help and cooperation.
