Frequently Asked Questions:

Question: “My drains are not working properly, or I have had a backup, who should I contact?”

Answer: Contact the City first. If a blockage is found in the City’s sewer main, a sewer cleaning crew will be dispatched to open the blockage. If the blockage is not in the sewer main, the property owner is responsible for removing any obstruction and any costs incurred.

The City will not do work on non-City owned lines.

Precautions against blockages you can take:

  • Disposable diapers and wipes should never be flushed. This is the #1 cause of backups we experience.
  • Plant trees away from sewer lines. Tree roots have an affinity for water and will seek moisture. Roots can cause cracks in pips and are a major source of blockages on private property.
  • Keep grease, egg shells, coffee grounds, fruit rinds, diapers, feminine applicators, and other solids out of the sewer. These items tend to settle and cause line blockages.
