Report any suspected utility emergencies to Utilities Customer Information & Services. Some examples of utility emergencies include:

  • Water leaks (Suspected water main breaks, hydrant overflowing, etc.)
  • Continued low pressure problems
  • Manhole overflows
  • Wastewater pump (lift) station alarms and odors

Help prevent sanitary sewer overflows. Fight F.O.G.- Fats, oils and grease that are poured down any drain can build up and block your sewer at home or work, causing nasty and costly sewer overflows. All of the following should be thrown away instead of being poured down the drain:

  • Cooking Oil
  • Butter
  • Grease
  • Fat
  • Gravy 
  • Mayonnaise and Sauces
  • Salad Dressings

Be aware of the dangers of flushable wipes. Do not flush anything down the toilet except for number 1, number 2 and toilet paper. Everything else should go in the trash. Although wipes advertised as ‘flushable’ can technically be flushed, they don’t easily break down and can cause blockages in the sewer system, leading to sewer backups. The Wipes Clog Pipes section details more about the dangers of flushable wipes.
