Due to the terrain in Diamond City, there are areas of the City that require a Sewage Grinder Pump.  This grinder pump grinds the sewage as it leaves the property owners’ sewage lines and then pushes it into the mainline for transmission to the sewage processing lift station.  For a newly built residence, the owner is responsible for the purchase of and installation of the pump on the resident’s sewer line.  For further information as to where a grinder pump is needed contact City Hall at 870.416-9156.
