A blockage in the sewer line can interfere with the normally quiet, out-of-sight process of sewer transmission. A sewer line blockage can cause a back-up through floor drains and toilets at the lowest point in your home or business. The overflow will continue until the blockage is removed or until sewage is no longer entering the line.
The City of Seagoville Wastewater Department combines educational efforts with regular maintenance and investigative practices to prevent blockages. Customer information in the bills and public presentations help our customers understand what can safely be disposed into the sewer system.
Below are articles from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality regarding FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) in sewer lines and how to prevent it.
