SEWER MAIN CLEANING TO START APRIL 10, 2017

CITY OF CLOQUET

The Cloquet Sewer Department will begin cleaning sewer mains on Monday, April 10th and continuing through the entire months of June, July, August, September and into October. The areas of focus this year are the neighborhoods west of HWY 33, including FDL Reservation and the neighborhood directly to the east of HWY 33, in the Washington School area. Cleaning will be done between the hours of 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Sewer customers in the immediate cleaning area may temporarily experience sewer gas odors and bubbling toilets or drains due to the cleaning process. If sewer odors are noticed, it is advisable to refill any p-traps of basement or seldom used drains by pouring a little water down each drain.

We apologize for any inconvenience which may be caused, but this work will help to provide better sewer service and reduce sewer backups.

Caleb Peterson

Director of Public Works
