|For Your Safety and Protection:
Remember your number 2 is our number 1 and that your flush is our rush.
A manhole is an opening to a confined space such as a shaft, utility vault, or large vessel. Manholes are vertical underground confined spaces used by utility personnel as a point of access to a sewer system. Manholes are typically located in the middle of the street however it is dependent on the location of the sewer main. Manholes and their lids can be extremely hazardous:
Plumbers and contractors can let you know when it is time to call the sewer department for assistance with a blockage in the main.
Please keep your service line (that’s the pipe from your house to the main sewer line in the middle of the street) point of access capped. Uncapping and letting sewage overflow on your property is not a solution to clogged or collapsed pipe. If you do this you will receive a notice that drinking water delivery into your home will be shut off until the issue is resolved.
Please do not flush wet wipes, hair, or tampon applicators of any type…even if they are labeled “flushable”. These wipes and objects do not break down with normal processes at the wastewater plant and can contribute to blockages forming in the collection network.
