Sump Pump Program - Wastewater Compliance

The City of Fargo's Sump Pump and Foundation Drain Enforcement Program is designed to protect homes and property throughout the city.

We work to ensure that sump pumps are properly discharging to reduce the risk of sewer backups in our community during heavy rainfall. We also strive to educate homeowners about the dangers of connecting their sump pumps to the sanitary sewer system.
