KC Water is launching a new program which will help property owners fix improper plumbing connections such as gutter downsprouts or sump pumps  which allow stormwater to infiltrate and overburden its sanitary sewer system.

“This program is really a partnership between Kansas City Water and property owners.  Property owners in the program areas have an opportunity to have their improper connections fixed at no cost,” said utility director Terry Leeds in a Kansas City Star report.

The Keep Out the Rain KC program will be providing the most cost-effective solutions to reducing the amount of rainwater entering the wastewater system.The Program  intends to evaluate more than 55,000 property  owners over the course of six years. Repairs will be completed by licensed plumbers prequalified to participate in the program.
