Why is Point of Sale Inspection Required?

The Point of Sale ordinance is intended to help reduce peak sanitary sewer flows caused by Inflow and Infiltration (I/I), or flow of clear water into the sanitary sewer system. The City’s wastewater pond capacity is limited and in order to reduce unnecessary water from entering the ponds, the City of Moose Lake requires a point of sale inspection to identify and reduce I/I to the wastewater collection system. These inspections allow the City to ensure that private properties have no illegal connections to the sanitary sewer system or pipe defects that contribute to excess peak flow discharges.
