Tips to prevent sewer back-ups:

Keep Sinks and Toilets Clear of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) and those dreaded WIPES!

These common sources of Sewer Back-ups should NEVER be flushed down the toilet or poured down the drain: “Flushable” Wipes – actually get stuck once they are flushed. This is a huge problem – and costly too.

Also,

  • Gravy, sauces and soups
  • Cooking oil, butter, shortening, lard and margarine
  • Milk, cream, sour cream and mayonnaise
  • Food scraps
  • Oil from cooked meats

Avoid Clogged Pipes – Take a moment to see the attached photos that capture what our Public Works Crews are finding in your sewer pipes.

Clogged Pipes – A Costly Problem

Disconnect Your Downspout

A downspout, also known as a roof leader, carries excess storm water from roofs and gutters away from homes to yards and grassy areas.  Be certain the rain runoff is not connected to the sewer system.
