Sewer Backups

Property owners are responsible for maintaining the sewer service line from the property to the City's main according to City Code (See Public Utilities 8-2-5).

If your sewer backs up:

1. Call a plumber first to determine where the issue is located.
2. Public Works will assist the plumber as needed for: 
  • Verifying issues up- and downstream from your address
  • Televising if necessary
Helpful hints: Flushable wipes are best when disposed in a trash can.
