Prevent sewer backups

Preparation is essential when it comes to protecting your plumbing from the cold. 

Over time, homeowners may experience problems such as collapsed pipes or tree roots growing into service lines that can cause stoppages with their sewer service lines. If your sewer backs up more than once a year, it may be time to clean or repair the line. Before contacting a contractor, call Utilities at 952-563-8777. They will check the City’s mainline condition in the street for a possible blockage. This service is free.
