WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2003 LOCAL PAGE / Trenton council - continued from front page real Wear lift station was found to have a large piece of materi- al, either a shirt or a towel, caught in it, which was causing the problem. The leaking seal is being repaired. Residents should not deposit any foreign articles in sanitary sewers. The city is working toward having its new back-up genera- tor at the sewer plant wired before it is put in operation. The city is also in the process of installing an alarm that will noti[y water and sewer person- nel when the level in the city's storm sewers has risen to a level that requires the city to directly pump from the sewer to help prevent sewage from back- ing up into residential base- ments, as has happened in the past. The city has recently contract- ed to have portions of the storm sewer system televised to iden- tify potential trouble areas that could be causing the back-ups, but has not yet been presented with results from those tests. There is a good chance that the city may never find the cause of the problem, since it could be related to the ways some homes are connected to the sewer and which devices deposit effluence into the sys- tem. It is illegal to hook sump pumps directly into the system, but city officials acknowledge that some homes in town may violate that law without even knowing it. There is also suspi- cion that some homes were built with seep tile surrounding them that also is connected directly to the sanitary sewer. Water and sewer committee chairman Pat Bassler reported that the water project is about 33 percent complete, and that a rate of' [bur to five percent a week the project should be fin- ished by the November 16th contract deadline. Bassler and water and sewer superinten- dent Roger Mane both said there have been relatively few problems with the project. Councilman Henry Kasson asked Trenton police chief Mike Jones what steps residents should take if they find dead birds that could have been killed by the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus. Jones said that the health department has already determined that West Nile is present in Trenton, and the birds should simply be dis- posed of. To mitigate the possi- bility of West Nile Virus, resi- dents should be particularly careful at dusk, when mosqui- toes are more prevalent, spray themselves with some form of DEET repellent, and wear clothing that covers as much bare skin as possible. Standing water in yards should be elimi- nated before mosquitoes are able to breed. The city sprays for mosquitoes regularly, when weather conditions are proper. The city street department is installing sidewalks near the Trenton post office and the Nut }louse Park. The sidewalk near the post office will accommodate a handicapped parking space that has been deSignated on the east side of the building.
