Sanitary Sewer

Sanitary sewer refers to the system of pipes and pumping stations that deliver wastewater from homes and businesses to wastewater treatment plants.  The City owns, operates and maintains the sanitary sewer system in the residential and business areas of:

  • Inverness
  • Riverchase
  • Southlake

Many homeowners/business owners are not aware that they are responsible for the sanitary sewer service line from their home or business to the main sewer. Any cleaning or repairs that need to be done to the service line are their responsibility. The City will provide assistance to you and/or your plumber to verify that the main sewer line is not obstructed. Should it be determined that main sewer line is obstructed, the City will take the necessary actions to alleviate the problem.
