City of Midland Notice to Public on Sanitary Sewer Overflow - June 23

June 23, 2017  The City of Midland Wastewater Plant has notified the public of sanitary sewer overflow events throughout the City due to recent heavy rainfall and flooding in the area. The City’s storm sewer system is full, but operating properly.

Multiple sewer overflows have been recorded in the City; however, the total volume of the event is not known as this time. Crews are working to remediate the issue as much as possible. More information will be provided when known.

For residents with water in their basements, please follow these guidelines to ensure safety:

  • Stay out of your basement. 
  • Do not try to pump the water out. Keep the pressure equal between the ground and the basement to avoid caving or floor movement.
  • Let the water go down on its own after the event.  If water is coming up through the floor drain, it will go back down.
  • Stay out of the water. Do not walk into the water for any reason.
  • Use good hygiene if you touch water, as there is likely some sewage in it.
  • If you are concerned with electrical issues please note the following: 
    • If your breaker is upstairs and you can turn it off safely yourself, do so.
    • Do NOT go into your basement to shut off your electricity. If needed, call  
      Consumers Energy at (800) 477-5050 to shut your electricity outside your house if needed.

For updated information on current flooding conditions, please visit the City of Midland Facebook page at facebook.com/cityofmidlandmi or Twitter @CityofMidlandMI, or visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov.
