City of Pataskala Utility Department has scheduled Sanitary Sewer Main Line Cleaning for January 21-24, 2020.
The following locations will be effected:
International Drive, Main Street, Township Road, Richard Connine, Hickory Lane, Mulberry Street, Broadway Street, Creek Road, Corylus Dr, and the Kroger Shopping Plaza.
Please remember to keep your toilet bowl lids down during this time. You may experience gurgling or bubbling water in the toilet bowl, or in rare cases, splash out of the bowl; this is simply the water in the bowl at the time and generally an issue with the private plumbing system. This is caused by air flow changes in the sanitary sewer main line pipe during the cleaning operations. After sanitary sewer main line cleaning operations you may notice a sewer gas smell from your basement floor drains or other fixtures throughout the home. If this does occur, flush your toilet and pour water into your floor drains and sinks, the air movement in the sewer during cleaning operations can actually pull the water out of the fixture traps in your home or business this is in place to hold back sewer odors.
If you have any questions please contact the Utilities Department at 740-964-6275
