Have a sewer problem?

The Public Utilities Department is here to assist you and is open Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  We can be reached by calling 240-5126.  After normal business hours, on weekends, or holidays, residents may call the Emergency After Hours number at 230-5630 (Water Treatment Plant) to report the problem.

Sewer line mains and the wye (connection to the sewer main) are the responsibility of the City to repair.  All service lines from the wye to the home is the responsibility of the property owner.  Any sewer line backup or clog from the sewer main to the house will be the responsibility of the property owner.
