Fulton to clean sewer system over next six months

Courtesy City of Milton

Over the next six months Milton residents are likely to see Fulton County contractors working on existing sanitary sewer lines to remove grease, debris and roots.

According to Fulton County, residents can expect to see Municipal Services, Inc. and Video Industrial Services, Inc.’s water, vactor and hose trucks and associated trailers, loaders and mixers. None will have Fulton County markings, as they are contractors hired by the county for the work.

However, each crew will carry identification and a Letter of Information and Authorization that states the nature of the work they are doing. It also lists key personnel at their company and the department to contact in case further questions or follow-up are required.

During the process of completing the work, it is possible that a hose, hose nozzle or camera may become trapped in a sewer line and require excavation for removal. While everything possible will be done to avoid these situations, any such instance will require a crew to dig up a line to remove the equipment.

Additionally, some areas of the system require access to the easement be gained via private property. All field crews will act in a professional and respectful way in dealing with any homeowner.

Each crew will carry identification and a copy of a letter addressed to homeowners that explains the work that is being done and all contacts at the department for information and confirmation.

If there is any conflict from a homeowner, the contractor will immediately move on from that location to another targeted location and report all issues to department representatives. That department representative will follow up with all citizen complaints and/or issues that may arise as a result of this work.

If you have any questions, please contact Justyna Grinholc, project manager, at 404-613-8622 and Colin Gowens at 404-612-0638.
