 Private Sewer Lateral Program
Preventative Measures you can take to practice good “Lateral Hygiene”
  • Periodically have your sewer lateral video inspected and cleaned.
  • Always notify the Water Quality Department prior to your lateral being cleaned so City crews can catch roots in the main line to prevent a sewer spill.
  • Repair or replace deteriorated or damaged lateral pipes as soon as possible.
  • Do not plant trees or large scrubs above sewer lateral lines.
  • Never pour grease down a drain. Let it cool down and dispose of in the trash.
  • Scrape food off your dishes into the trash before rinsing off into the sink.

Problems to Look for:

  • Drain back ups inside your house or business.
  • Wet or soggy ground in your yard.
  • Water leaking from cleanouts or outside drains.
  • Unusual odors or sewage smells in or around your home or business.
  • For more information about the City’s program please call Tracy Ingebrigtsen at (949) 497-0781 or download the guides below.

When you have your lateral inspected and cleaned, fill out the inspection report below for your property file.
