Crews assigned to the Public Works Sewer Maintenance Division maintain over 73 miles of main sewer line. All main sewer lines are cleaned annually. Problem areas, locations where grease accumulates on the sewer line walls, are inspected and cleaned more frequently. Main sewer lines are also televised and inspected on an on-going basis. Building sewer lines are the responsibility of the property owner. A building sewer line is the line conveying wastewater from the building to the main line.
When an inquiry is received from a property owner or resident about a possible blockage in the building sewer, crews have the equipment needed to televise the line to determine if a blockage exists and, if so, reveal the location and origin of the blockage. However, to utilize this equipment, the building sewer must have a cleanout installed. If not, the equipment cannot be utilized. This courtesy service is provided at no cost to the community.
To request this service or for any additional information, please call the Public Works Superintendent, Monday - Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (909) 625-9467.
