How to Reduce or Prevent Sewer Spills

  • Prevent clogs by putting grease in the trash, not down the drain
  • Keep roots out of pipelines by planting trees away from sewer lines
  • Do not throw garbage or junk into manholes

Operation, maintenance and repair crews are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to spills. If you see or smell a sewer spill, report it immediately by calling 770-794-5230.
