Winter reminders
It is a top priority of the Fall River Public Works Department to keep Village streets safe for travel throughout the winter months. Residents can help make plowing and salting operations more efficient and effective by following the Village winter parking regulations and, whenever possible, avoiding parking on Village streets anytime during inclement weather. In addition, snow from a driveway or sidewalk may not be deposited on the street. If you encounter an unsafe situation on Village streets, please contact the Fall River Public Works Department.

Winter ordinances:
Parking regulations
Sidewalk snow and ice removal

It is also greatly appreciated if residents would clear snow from fire hydrants on or near their property.

Sewer Utility Needs Your Help!
Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.

Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly, in the trash!
