The Department of Public Works is experiencing a higher rate of clogged pumps at the Zimmer Road lift station.  We believe that the improper disposal of items such as adult undergarments, baby diapers and mop heads may be the cause.  Please properly dispose of these items in the trash.  Blocked lift station pumps could cause sewage backups in your area.  Please call 517-655-2221, if you have any questions or concerns.
