1. Forcemains that will clog (the scouring issue). Extended loss of sewer service. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/1-Scour_velocity.pdf

2. Using pumps that may ignite flammable gases causing explosions. NEC, NFPA. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/2-Explosion_proof.pdf

3. No sewer service when power is out- need for a “camp bucket” & a place to dump it. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/3-power_outage.pdf

4. No connector for an external pump- a generator will not help if the forcemain plugs. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/4-pump_outs.pdf

5. Seasonal occupancy or other extended period of disuse destroys the pump. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/5-Inactive_pumps.pdf

6. Insufficient air release valves will cause air-locks of forcemains and block flow. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/6-Air_Release.pdf

7. Lack of provisions for mechanical forcemain cleaning- extended loss of service. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/7-inability_to_clear_mains.pdf

8. Maximized number of grinders, misled the public. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/8-Maximized_number_of_pumps.pdf

9. Design violated main separation requirements in some places. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/9-main_separation.pdf

10. Sole-sourced E-1 pumps in violation of government purchasing laws. http://dumpthepumps.com/Exhibits/10-sole_sourced_e-1_pump.pdf
