Sewer and Drainage Problems
Property owners are responsible for their sewer service from their house to their connection to the main. In most areas of the city, a sewer clean-out is installed at your property line or easement line.
If you experience a sewer backup at your residence, it is the responsibility of the property owner to hire a reputable plumber to clear the service line.
For missing or buried clean-outs, please call the operations yard for a location.
If you notice that sewer effluent is escaping from a manhole, please call the public works operation yard for immediate attention.
