Sanitary Sewer Manhole
The sanitary sewer system carries waste water, wash water and flushable solids to Columbus' Sewerage Treatment plant. Crews maintain miles of sewer line through a combination of remote camera inspections, line cleaning, spot repair, and herbicidal treatment. Occasionally blockages do occur and cause a back up of sewage. To prevent problems in your sewer line, never put non-biodegradable items (cloth, diapers, feminine sanitary products), grease, or food materials in your sewer line (sink or toilet). To report a suspected backup, call the Service & Engineering Department at 431-2425 from 7:30AM to 4:30PM. Evenings and weekends, call 885-4463 and crews will be dispatched to investigate your problem.
