Keep your sewer lateral in good condition and help reduce the risk of sewer backups. How to Protect your Property and Environment? Never let fats, oils or grease go down the drain; compost it instead. Dumping grease down the drain can clog the sewer pipes, result in back-ups or overflows onto your property or streets, foul odors, and costly damage to sewer infrastructure. Remember that your toilet is an “only-human-waste-and-toilet-paper-zone.” Nothing, except the 3 P’s (pee, poop and toilet paper), go down the drains. Lower Lateral Responsibility: You are responsible for maintaining it
We are cleaning and inspecting sewer lines throughout San Francisco. The work is being done by our crews and by contractors working for the SFPUC. What does sewer cleaning work entail? Using high pressure water hoses and vacuum trucks, crews flush the pipes and catch basins. Obstructive debris is removed and properly discarded. Sewer lines vary in diameter from a few inches to eight feet. In order to clean the larger lines properly, specially trained crews wearing protective clothing and safety gear may be needed to physically walk the sewer. How long does it take? Sewer cleaning work
San Francisco is the only coastal city in California with a combined sewer system that collects and treats both wastewater and stormwater in the same network of pipes. Water flows through most of the sewers using gravity. Our hilly geography comes in handy reducing the energy and maintenance costs associated with mechanical pumping. Stormwater enters the combined sewer system through building roof drains or the catch basins along the street and gets treated at our plants just like the wastewater that goes down your drain. One of the City’s challenges is that the watershed area is mostly paved
