Sewer Maintenance
Sewer Repairs
The property owner is responsible for any repairs on the service line from the home to the main line. The City is not responsible for repairs within the public road right-of-way.

Sewer Pumps
If you use a sump pump in your basement, it is illegal to drain the water into the basement sanitary sewer drain or laundry tub. Sump pumps must be discharged outside of the house to the yard or drainway that will prevent the water from draining directly to the street.

Sewer Odors
Floor and sink drains usually have water filling the bottom of the drain trap, which acts as a barrier between the air in the sewer line and the air in your home. When a drain trap becomes dry, sewer odors can enter into the residence. If you experience sewer odors in your home, run water down your drain.
