Requests involving water above 12 inches will be handled by the Fire Department on a case-by-case basis. Priority will be given to situations involving compromised structures or utilites, according to the Village website.
Village Administrator Christopher Bradbury sent the following statement about the pump-out procedures:
Residents should call RB Police at 937-1020 to get on a list for pump-outs. Threats to structures or utilities are the first priority. Most pump-outs will occur when it is safe after the storm and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Water must be over 12 inches due to the large size of the fire department pumps.
