Here's Why Your Toilet Might Burp, WRJ

Submitted a year ago

Weeks of 9/25/2017 and 10/2/2017: Flushing of sewer mains will occur in the White River Junction area South of the White River.

You may hear an occasional noise in the sewer pipes and an occasional “burp” in the toilets. Lack of adequate venting of sewer pipes may result in splatter from your toilets. Please keep your toilet seats shut during the day in the event of any water splatter.

Also, please check any unused bathrooms or sinks as dry traps may emit sewer gas. If you feel that you have any sewer gases, please make sure all of the traps are full. Let us know if you have any problems.

Thank you very much,
