The side sewer is the sewer pipe that connects a building to the sewer main located in the street. Property owners are responsible for maintenance and repair of side sewers. The city is responsible for sewer mains if they are located in public right of way, like streets, or a utility easement dedicated to the city.
Maintenance & Inspections
The Streets and Utilities division routinely maintains the sanitary sewer mains to keep them flowing freely. Our crews inspect and clean the sewer mains on a scheduled bases. The city also conducts television video inspections of the sewer system. Wise use of the sewage system and performance of simple preventative maintenance will help safeguard the system and reduce costs for everyone.
