JoCo program helps to protect against basement flooding

Recent heavy rain events have left some Johnson County homeowners with the frustrating challenge of basement backups caused by the surcharging of sanitary sewers.

Johnson County Wastewater (JCW) wants to help residents better protect their homes from basement backups by making them aware of the Backup Prevention Program (BUPP) – available to homeowners within the JCW service area. The program is voluntary and provides one-time funding to eligible properties for the installation of a backup prevention device, or plumbing modifications, to reduce the risk of future backups.

More information or to apply for BUPP is available here, or by calling 913-715-8554.
