Keeping your sanitary sewer line clean, open and in good repair reduces the risk of blockages, a basement backup and raw sewage leaking into the groundwater.

Maintaining your sanitary sewer line is simple. Understanding what your sanitary sewer line is, how it works, and contacting CityWide Sewer & Drain Service Corp. is all you need to do.

Maintaining Your Sanitary Sewer Line Is Every Homeowners Responsibility

As A Property Owner You Are Responsible For:

  1. Keeping the sanitary sewer line clear of blockages and debris
  2. Repairing any broken or collapsed portions of the line located on your property

By not properly maintaining your sanitary sewer line, you may be financially responsible for any damage to yours or your neighbor's property caused by your sanitary sewer line.

What is a Sanitary Sewer Line?

Your "Sanitary Sewer Line" is the sewer line that connects your home to the public sewer system. Wastewater from your toilets, sinks, showers, and washing machine travels through your sanitary sewer line to the public sewer main line which carries it to the nearest wastewater plant for treatment.

How Does My Sanitary Sewer Line Effect Neighbors And The Public Sewer System?

Your Neighbors
If your sanitary sewer line is broken or leaking, raw sewage could be seeping into the ground water. Ground water passes to your neighbors yards, to creeks, to streams, into Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.

Public Sewer System
A broken or cracked sanitary sewer line can allow storm water to enter and create a system overload causing backups and overflows throughout Nassau County's public sewer system.

What Can Cause My Sanitary Sewer Line To Clog, Crack Or Break?

Blockages are most often caused by excessive buildups of grease (a result of pouring cooking grease and fat down the kitchen sink). When flushed, plastic and other non-soluble materials such as baby wipes, diapers, feminine products and kitty litter can also get caught in the line and block the flow of wastewater through the system.

A common problem is also tree and shrub roots that have grown into the line. Sanitary sewer lines installed prior to 1980 in Nassau County are primarily made of cast iron or clay and can deteriorate or become brittle over time. Roots seek water and will find their way through cracks and holes causing blockages and further damage.

Unfortunately, contractors can also cause damage to sewer lines due to inexperience and improper tool usage.

What Do I Need To Do?

You need to call CityWide Sewer & Drain Service Corp. to have your sanitary sewer line inspected. A video inspection camera will be fed through your line so you can view the lines condition; then your line will be cleaned and cleared of any blockages and repairs made if necessary. The video inspection service is free with every cleaning. A reminder card will be mailed in 12 months to schedule your next inspection.
