Notice to Customers

On April 21, 2018 the Fountain Sanitation District received a complaint from a concerned citizen about a missing manhole cover. Upon further investigation, the District discovered seven (7) total manhole covers have been removed and taken from the Countryside area of Progress Drive and Wilson Road. This poses a risk to public safety, as well as the function of the wastewater system. Please immediately report missing manhole covers to the District or to the Fountain Police Department.

Given the serious nature of this theft event, the District will pay a $1,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved. Tampering with the District’s wastewater system is a crime and will be prosecuted to the maximum monetary penalties allowed by local, state and federal agencies.

Anyone with information on the missing manhole covers is asked to call the District Administration Office at (719) 382-5303 or the City of Fountain Police Department at (719) 382-8555.

Here is a list of things you should avoid washing down your drain, sink, or toilet. Everything here has  reportedly been found in municipal sewer systems at one point or another!

Don't Flush

Always use your best judgment when washing things down a drain. Avoid flushing fatty, oily, greasy or sticky substances that might clog your service line.

Consult your insurance, plumbing, and sanitation utility professionals for additional information.

Just because it’s not on this list doesn’t mean you should flush it!

Biodegradable’ products don’t degrade fast enough for you to flush! They should go in the garbage and will degrade at the landfill.

Use boiling water or dish detergents like Dawn® to help degrease your pipes and prevent blockages from forming.

Don’t buy the hype! ‘Disposable’ tampons and personal wipes should not be flushed! They are prime culprits in large blockages.
