  1. 5/7/2010 DISTRICT DELUGED WITH WATER IN BASEMENT CALLS
  2. The District has been flooded with calls reporting water seeping into their basements.  They have also stated that this has never happened in all the years they’ve resided at their home.  The District has had a lot of moisture these past few weeks, especially with the snow and rain storms just two weeks ago.  Because of all this moisture, the ground water table is above normal levels and causes water to penetrate areas that normally aren’t affected.
     
    If you have a sump pump, make sure it is functioning properly.  Also, confirm the discharge line is at least five feet from the foundations of your home.  If it is too close the water will just be recycled.  Another consideration is to make certain all roof drains and downspouts discharge away from the foundation.
     
    With warmer weather on the horizon, we suspect this issue will begin to recede, but be patient, it could take several weeks.
     
    If you have any questions or concerns about this problem, please call Scott Hand, Operations Supervisor at 303-979-2333.
