The results of a sewer emergency of any type usually result in two things: a large bill from the repair company and a lot of hours put into cleaning up the area. It is a problem that no one wants to face, yet those homeowners who are upset about the high cost of their indoor plumbing repairs should be grateful that they didn’t receive a bill like the California Sewer District did this past April.
The Sacramento Sewer District Pays Massive Fine for Multiple Spills
In April of 2017, the Sacramento sewer district agreed to pay a fine of $225,000 to the state due to 80 spills that took place over the course of three and a half years, including one that caused raw sewage to be dumped into a local creek.
The settlement covered spills that occurred between March 2012 and November 2015. During that time, there was a total of 300,000 gallons of sewage dumped in the area.
The sewer district faced enforcement action over the most recent spills that occurred when heavy storms passed through the area and were too much for the pipeline system. The city is now taking the steps to ensure that all sewage stays contained in the future.
Are You Experiencing Sewer Line Issues in your Home?
If you suspect that there may be problems with your residential sewer line, there are a few things you should look for. If your drains are not emptying out as fast as they should, there could be a problem with clogs or another blockage in your pipes. The same could be true if your toilets are constantly clogging or overflowing.
If you have noticed a sewage-like odor in or around your home that is persistent, that is another sign of clogs or a leak in your lines. Anytime you experience these problems, or you feel that your lines need to be inspected, it is a good idea to get in touch with the experts at Sewer Co. They will send out a technician to assess the damage and let you know exactly what is going on.
What if I Need a New Sewer Line Installed?
At one time, having a new sewer line installed meant that you needed to take out a second mortgage on your home. This wasn’t simply to cover the cost of the installation, but also the cost of cleaning up your lawn after it was destroyed by a new trench. You also would need extra cash to stay at a local motel while you waited a week or so for your indoor plumbing to be turned back on.
