The City of West Fargo is asking residents to discharge sump pump water onto lawns or in the street and not into the sewer system. Water pumped into the sewer system from sump pumps may cause back up into homes.

In addition, the city recommends that home owners inspect their down spouts and shovel away snow from foundations of homes to prevent water from entering basements.
