Clean H2O40 will go a long way toward making Northern Kentucky cleaner, healthier and more sustainable. But SD1 needs your help!
Here are simple ways that you can help keep our region thriving:
If your home’s downspout is connected to SD1’s sewer system, disconnect the downspout and redirect the runoff from your roof to your lawn, a rain barrel or another vegetated area. Learn more about our DRIP Program.
Reduce the impervious surface area (e.g. concrete) of your property so that rainfall can soak into the ground naturally. Learn more about impervious surface area.
Avoid planting invasive trees and plants near sewer lines. Learn more about invasive trees and plants.
Keep your private sewer lateral (the pipe connecting your home to the public sewer system) working properly. Learn more about private lateral maintenance.
Keep trash, pet waste, disposable wipes, fats/oils/greases and other household hazardous wastes out of the sewer at all times. Learn more about our FOG Program.
By the Numbers
Number of sanitary wipes you should flush each year. Even most of those labeled as “flushable” do not disintegrate easily and can cause major problems for the plumbing in your home as well as the public sewer system.
