The Sewer Fairness Alliance is a non-profit organization whose mission is to  ensure equal protection and maintenance benefits for Chelmsford homeowners with grinder pump systems that residents with non-grinder pump systems receive.

Through the efforts of the Sewer Fairness Alliance and the Grinder Pump Study Committee, Article 25, which brought all homeowners into the town wide maintenance program, was passed at the Spring 2014 Town Meeting.

The task of the SFA is not over as the implementation of Article 25 is in it's early stages and needs to be monitored along with ongoing support to homeowners who have had the pump failure determined to be "homeowner abuse."
