Sewer Overflow Prevention

Overview

Sewer Overflow Prevention

Keeping wastewater in the sewers is the job of Central San’s Collection System through cleaning, maintenance and repair of 1,500 miles of underground sewer lines. You can help by making sure that your side sewer – the connection from your home to the public sewer – remains free of any blockages.

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)
How to Prevent FOG from Damaging Your Home and the Environment

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)

Fats, oils, and grease aren’t just bad for your arteries and your waistline; they’re bad for sewers too.

Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage home interiors, and threaten the environment.

The second leading cause of all sewer overflows is grease blockages. Grease can get into the sewer from household drains as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.

Lateral Inspection Brochure

When buying a home, your offer should be contingent on the results of a professional inspection of the property. Many types of loans require such an inspection. If the inspection turns up something like termite infestation or cracks in the foundation, you can withdrawal from the contract, or you can have the seller repair the problem to your satisfaction.
