Sump Pump Program

Photo of sump pump in basementThe 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.

Have a wet basement? Review our illustration of common causes for this problem; it's available as a JPEG or PDF (requires free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view). A brochure, "Sump Pump Success: Your guide to sump pump use & regulations" is also available.
