Sanitary sewer cleaning is a routine operation that results in a debris and blockage free gravity sanitary sewer system. During this activity, high velocity water is sprayed against the internal pipe walls of the city’s sanitary sewer, systematically removing accumulated grease, debris, and sediments.
Fishers Public Works Department is committed to providing uninterrupted sanitary sewer service. Grease and other debris can form deposits on the internal wall of the sanitary sewer pipe. Over time these deposits can cause blockages and backups in the sanitary sewer. In order to reduce the potential for sewer blockages and backups Public Works Department crews clean the 110 miles of 8- to 27-inch diameter sanitary sewer pipe in the city’s Sewer District annually.
Similar to the cause of odors, water burping from the toilet is causes by an improperly operating plumbing vent. A licensed plumber can diagnose the problem and make recommendations. In the meantime, the problem can be temporarily solved by opening the clean out cap to your house or building lateral. Most houses and buildings have a clean out located on the side or front of the structure approximately three feet from the wall. The open clean out acts as an additional vent for the house or building plumbing. Opening the clean out should only be a temporary remedial until a licensed plumber can make permanent repairs. Open clean out allow rodents, debris, and stormwater to enter the sanitary sewer.
If you have a question or need additional information on the city’s sanitary sewer cleaning program, contact: Jonathan Valenta, Public Works Assistant Director,10210 Eller Rd., Fishers, IN 46038, 317-595-3139 (office) email@example.com Dan Tucker, Supervisor, 10210 Eller Road, Fishers, IN 46038, 317-595-3108 (office), 317-339-8683 (cell) firstname.lastname@example.org
