■ Why doesn’t the City allow a sewer discount when I fill my pool?

The City does not allow sewer discounts to fill a pool because the water should be discharged into the sanitary sewer system. 

Many swimming pools have a bottom drain directly connected to a sanitary sewer, while other pools are pumped out or the water level lowered with portable pumps and the water is discharged directly into the homeowner’s sewer or onto the ground. 

There is an EPA regulation prohibiting the discharge of chlorinated pool water into storm sewers or drainage ditches where it could meet surface water.
