If you are one of the thousands of people that have had Oakland County and their local city governments to use your basements as raw sewage retention basins, please sign up with the Schitts Foundation to raise awareness regarding this immoral and illegal injustice.
The municipalities of Oakland County have a long history of inundating homes with raw sewage, pollutants, water, human feces, dirt and debris because the combined sewage and stormwater system is improperly designed and constructed, maintained and operated.
Officials from the Village Beverly Hills & their contractor Hubble, Roth & Clark (HRC), Oakland County Water Resources Commission and EGLE have publicly stated that sewage backups will continue to happen in the future.
One of the ways you can protect your home from future sewage backups is to install a backflow prevention device(s). If maintained properly, these should prevent any future backups. What they don’t tell you is that when you install backflow prevention at your home, the hydrostatic pressure in the combined sewer pipes will increase, making the sewage backups worse for your neighbors who do not have the protection.
“Even though you may not have The Schitts right now, there is a very good chance you will have them in the future.”
