Sewer Lateral Repair Program

The line connecting a building or home with the main sewer line is called the Lateral Line. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain, clean, and repair this line. The City has a Sewer Lateral Repair Program if your lateral is broken in the street. Please call (618) 233-7146 or (618) 233-8588 if you suspect your lateral in the street is broken.
For your safety, please, never open a manhole.
