Sewer Back-ups 

Residential and commercial property owners who experience sewer back-ups can either call a private contractor or the Town to undertake the necessary repair work. 

Town staff can clean and perform a video inspection of sewer services, however, there is a cost for this service if the problem is found to be on the private owner portion of the service. 

If a private contractor is hired to clear a blockage on a sewer service, the homeowner will be responsible for all charges regardless of whether the blockage is on the private or public side of the service.
