The STREET AND SEWER DIVISION are responsible for overseeing, maintaining and repairing streets, sidewalks and sewers.

  •  Did you know?  Homeowners are required to maintain the lateral from their home, to the main sewer line, typically located in the street, or nearby easement. Maintaining the lateral includes keeping the lateral line flowing and free of debris such as roots, or grease. 

Here are some helpful tips to minimize sewer problems :

1.    Maintain your lateral through proper cleaning, repair, and replacement. 

2.    Do not place improper items into the sewer or make improper connections to the sewer.
               • Do not pour fats, oils, and grease in your drains as these products harden and stick to the inside of the sewer pipes, which build up and may eventually cause a blockage in the sewer pipe.

3.    Install a backflow preventer and cleanout in your sewer lateral.

Taking these simple steps can help keep the flow going, and prevent costly overflows and damage.
