The City of Hays Water Resources Department has contracted with Midlands Contracting, a Johnson Service Company, to conduct sewer line cleaning and inspections at the locations shown on the attached map. Cleaning of the sanitary sewer lift station at 27th and Highway 183 Bypass will also occur during this project.
Cleaning will begin Monday, June 14, 2021. Midlands Contracting should be completed with the entire project by Friday, July 2, 2021. Some work is expected to be completed late afternoon into the early evening hours.
Door hanger notices will be placed on homes and businesses affected prior to cleaning. Work will begin at the North end of the project area and proceed South until completed. During this process, residents may experience a rumbling sound, in addition to the possibility of water entering your sink, bathtub and/or toilet. Sewer lines can develop air pressure or a partial vacuum from the cleaning process.
If you will not be home or on vacation during the time of sewer line cleaning, please protect your home by keeping your toilet lids down. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Midland Contracting’s project manager Josh Sasse at 1-(308) 627-9795 or the Water Resources Dept. at 785-628-7380.
