Village Resident? Sump pump connected to the sanitary sewer?
Check out this limited time FREE offer + cash compensation
On behalf of CARDEL Homes the Richmond Village Association (RVA) is reaching out to residents who may have “non-conforming” sump pump installations. This is a generous offer to have your system brought into conformity at no charge to the homeowner. The RVA has no role or responsibility in the work that will be done. The RVA will act as an intermediary and bring forward the names and contact information of applicants to Cardel for consideration. Please note: this is a limited opportunity that will be provided on a “first come, first served basis” until the necessary quota of sump pump systems is reached. Those who participate will sign an agreement with Cardel and their subcontractors to have the necessary work performed. You can read a copy of the agreement you would sign here.
How many sump systems will be remediated? The City has not yet defined the number but more are required at the moment.
Why is this offer being made? As a condition of approval for a subdivision a limited number of non-conforming sump pump systems need to be removed in order to provide sanitary sewer capacity to service the new subdivision.
Is it really necessary? You recall the flooded Jock River this spring? Did you realise the city had to pump raw sewage into the Jock as Richmond’s sewer system overloaded? It is suspected that part of the increased demand on the sewer system comes from non-conforming sump pumps and some from water leaking into the pipes. So, every litre of water pumped into the system at that time by a non-conforming sump pump added a litre of raw sewage to the Jock! If your sump pump discharges into the sanitary sewer lines it is non-conforming. It should discharge into a storm sewer or surface storm drain to avoid overloading the sanitary sewer.
How do I sign up? Just fill out the form below and don’t forget to click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the form. If you are in this wave of applications forwarded to Cardel for consideration you will be notified. All others will receive an acknowledgement of their interest and may be considered in turn if more systems need to be remediated to meet the requirements for subdivision approval by the City.
