Collective sanitation

Collection and treatment of wastewater and rainwater

Contact

By phone on 03 87 28 30 30 Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 00 p.m. and from 12 p.m. to 13 p.m. (30 p.m. on Friday) or by email at contact@agglo-sarreguemines.fr

Rights and duties of users and the sanitation service:

Wipes are a real scourge for the sanitation system, they cause clogs and pollution. Under no circumstances should they be flushed down the toilet even if they are said to be biodegradable, but should be disposed of with household waste (blue bag). Each year, our service spends approximately €210 to deal with the damage caused by the wipes.

Network connection

For a connection to the collective sanitation network, a connection request form must be completed and sent to the Agglomeration Community.

Rainwater connection

Rainwater connection

Connecting rainwater to the sewer is no longer the preferred solution. Why evacuate rainwater very far and mix it with polluted water when it can be infiltrated or stored in your garden? Why continue to saturate the networks with heavy rains when they are already overflowing and the phenomenon will increase with climate change?

Several on-plot stormwater management solutions are presented in the brochure that can be downloaded here:
