West Valley Sanitation District provides wastewater collection, transport, and disposal services for the cities of Campbell, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, two-thirds of Saratoga, and intervening unincorporated areas of the county. These residential services typically provide for the sewer wastewater collection for your home’s toilets, sinks, and showers.
The recent persistent and heavy rains have been challenging for homeowners, as well as for West Valley Sanitation District. West Valley Sanitation District has been experiencing extremely high flows in the collection system. We would like to remind homeowners that the disposal of stormwater into the sewer collection system is not allowed and will result in the system being unable to carry out its purpose of wastewater collection, such as toilet flushing. Please do not discharge sump pump drainage into the home sewer system or connect storm drains to the wastewater system. Preventing stormwater from entering the wastewater collection system will ensure reliable collection and operation of each residential home’s toilets, sinks and showers.
Your help to prevent storm water from entering the wastewater sewer system will prevent you from possibly experiencing backups from occurring and the resulting loss of ability to use your home’s drain system.
