General Information

Your sanitary sewer system is very much like your water heater - you don't think about it much, until it stops working. Sewers are often taken for granted - out of sight, out of mind - until the out of sight part stops working.

If you have a sewer backup or suspect a blockage outside your house, call our Sewer Maintenance Division first at (916) 774-5750 (24 hrs).

As a service, a crew will check to see if the backup is in the city’s main or service. If it is, we will clear the blockage. However, if the blockage is in the lateral serving the residence or business, it is the resident's/business owner’s responsibility to clear any blockage in their lateral line, which connects their property to the City’s. Several professional sewer maintenance and plumbing companies can be found in the phone book to accomplish this work. We recommend that anyone get at least 2 or 3 estimates from reputable plumbing companies for major sewer repair project.
