MOSQUITO SPRAYING
The City of Benson sprays for mosquitos. The schedule for spraying is as follows:
Wednesdays 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Thursdays 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.
 

 
WHERE SHOULD MY SUMP PUMP WATER GO?
Clear water from your sump pump needs to be pumped out of your house to drain into the gutter. Sump pumps that drain into the sanitary sewer cause high inflow, which means the City costs to process wastewater goes up.
Please be sure your sump pump is draining outside.
The City of Benson appreciates your cooperation
