Proper disposal of all materials can help prevent backups and assist town crews in maintaining sewer lines. Residents can also maintain their sewer laterals and have them inspected periodically. If you plan to plant trees in your yard, make sure you know where your sewer lateral is located and avoid planting trees near a lateral. Roots are the most common cause of damage to laterals. The town will assist you in locating your sewer lateral.
Residents should avoid putting grease or eggshells in their sinks or garbage disposals. Grease is a major cause of sewer stoppages and eggshells do not decompose and can clog pipes and pumps.
The only thing that should be flushed down the toilet is toilet paper. Other items, such as feminine hygiene products, wrappers, baby wipes, and Swiffer pads can cause backups in sewer mains and laterals and damage sewer pumps.
