SSO Contingency Plans are Simple, Smart and Free Stress Reducers

A sanitary sewer overflow is a pressure-packed situation that calls for quick thinking and action, but creating a contingency plan with Xylem Rental Solutions will help lower stress levels by giving you a head start on your emergency mitigation efforts. 

This really is a simple case of fixing your roof before it starts raining. There's nothing overly complicated or time-consuming about creating one of these contingency plans. Working with Xylem experts, you'll put down on paper the basics of what you need, so you can move quickly to contain an SSO when it occurs.

The first thing you'll notice is that it is an easy read. In five pages, it provides an overview of the pump station normal operating mode, and then it lists:

  • Site conditions and access information
  • Equipment your community needs to mitigate an SSO
  • Directions to your location and a designated meeting place during the SSO situation
  • 24/7 contact info for your Xylem emergency team 

Once the contingency plan is complete, keep it in a safe place and add your Xylem emergency contacts to your cellphone, so you can reach them right away should the unthinkable become the unavoidable. 

Creating this type of plan is nothing you couldn't do yourself, but it's one of those things that we all promise to do tomorrow — and tomorrow never comes. With a simple phone call to Xylem, their team of experts will make it happen.

It's a free service that frees you up from some of the stress associated with SSOs — and will help you mitigate your next SSO as quickly as possible.
