Roots in Your Sanitary Sewer Service Line

The City of Arvada Wastewater Division receives calls from residents relating to sanitary sewer backups. Most of the time, roots in the sewer service line caused the problem. If you have had problems with sewer backups due to roots in the sewer service line, read on for some valuable information.

In March 2003, the City of Arvada mailed to all sewer customers information on how roots can plug sanitary sewer service lines and what can be done about it (see related links).
