Sewer Backup

Homeowners are responsible for sewer backup problems on personal or private property. However, if you are experiencing a sewer backup you may call our Streets and Utilities division to inspect and clean the city sewer main that is adjacent to your side sewer. By doing so, we can ensure that the back up is not in the city sewer main, but is located in the side sewer.

If there is any issue with a backup on city property or with a City of Anacortes sewer manhole, please call Public Works Operations immediately at 360-293-1921 during normal business hours. Outside of normal business hours, (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) please call 911 and they will dispatch our crew.
