The City of Washington would like to remind all property owners and sewer utility customers that the City of Washington is responsible for the sewer main lines. The property owner is responsible for the lateral and the tap.
Due to the recent purchase of the sewer camera system for the city’s sewer mains, staff has noticed numerous privately-owned sewer taps which are displaying root intrusion. Once these root intrusions invade the city sewer mains, it causes problems and backups on the mains as well as for the property owner.
Sewer maintenance can help prevent sewer backup problems. Maintenance measures, including flushing a root killer product, such as Root-X, down the toilet twice a year, can help break up and prevent unnecessary root growth. This could save costly digging and repair expense.
Also, when the City of Washington is responding to requests for utility locates, as provided through the Kansas One-Call Service, the city will only locate city-owned utilities, up to and including the sewer main. The City cannot and will not locate privately owned sewer lines from the main to the property.
For a list of what NOT to flush down your sewer, please see the press release below.
