Handling Sewer Backups

If you are experiencing a sewer backup, stop running water and report the backup immediately by contacting your municipality’s operations division or designated sanitary sewer emergency contact. Find your local contact below.

Also, be aware of electrical and shock hazards. If there is standing water in your basement where you have electrical appliances, contact your local utility company before entering the area.
