Downspout Disconnection

City Wide Downspout Disconnection Program

In an effort to reduce the amount of storm water that enters Marion's sewer system when it rains, the city is continuing Marion's downspout disconnection program. In past years there have been organized initiatives that verified the disconnection of downspouts and sump pumps from the sewer system. This current phase of the program ask Marion's citizens to continue to partner with the city to improve water quality, protect our homes from flooding, and reduce operational cost to the city.
