Ordinance Guidelines for Weed Control
Any weeds or plants declared as noxious weeds by the State Weed Board and all other weeds and grass
growing upon any lot or parcel of land in the Town shall not reach a height greater than 10 inches.
Ethan Town Ordinance (Chapter 3, Sec. 3.3.5-N) prohibits any person to pump ground water from a sump pit or drain tile pit into the city’s sanitary sewer system.
This city ordinance is mandated by South Dakota laws and regulations governing what type of liquids are allowed in sanitary sewer systems.
Residents are advised that anyone found routing their drainage into the sanitary sewer system will be notified of the violation.
You will have two (2) weeks to correct the violation. If at that time you are still in violation you will be fined $250.
Please help keep the city’s sanitary sewer system within its design limits by keeping all but sewage from entering the sanitary sewer system.
Thank you to those who have rerouted their sump pumps, your help is greatly appreciated.
