Illegal Connections to the Sanitary Sewer - Friday, August 16, 2019
What are they? Simply, they are when storm water is connected to the sanitary sewer. In our communities, this practice is illegal and causes issues during storm events at the wastewater treatment plant. It might seem like the most convenient option to discharge your sump pump and downspouts to the sanitary sewer, but you're actually risking water and sewage damage to your home. Our friends in Cedar Rapids, Iowa created a great video that talks about this issue. If you have questions about what can and can't be connected, please feel free to contact us. Please enjoy this great video! https://youtu.be/ZNzSQRcdaqQ 

Insurance Coverage - Friday, March 15, 2019

Over the years, many of our customers have had to deal with sewer issues that are costly and unpleasant to deal with.  While sewer odors may be an easier fix, broken sewer leads and backups of sewer into the home are much more difficult to deal with.  Until recently, there was no economic relief from homeowner’s insurance to help with the cost of sewer lead failures.

Several years ago, insurance companies began offering sewer backup coverage on homeowners’ insurance.  It is usually added as a rider for an additional fee with a limited amount of coverage.  Unfortunately, many people are not aware that this is available to them. 

Additionally, many insurance companies have begun offering coverage to cover the lead from the house to the sewer main.  This is also added as a rider for an additional cost. 

While these coverage's may not cover the total cost of a repair, it is a tremendous help, usually for a minimal cost.  Some companies even offer different levels of coverage amount.  We encourage you to contact your insurance company to find out if these coverage's are available to add additional protection to your home.

 

Who To Call - Thursday, February 14, 2019

SCCMUA takes care of the wastewater treatment plant and contracts with the municipalities to take care of their collection systems (pipe in the ground and the lift stations).  Many times we have lead sheets showing the location of your lead to the house and we can make a copy for the homeowner.

If you are experiencing slow drains, odors, or a sewer backup, please call us first before calling a plumber.  We can check the mainline sewer to make sure there isn't a problem there first.  We will let you know what we find and if there isn't a problem with our system, then you would need to call a plumber.

If you have a question about billing, need to change an account into or out of your name, or have a question about permit fees, you will need to call the municipality where the property is located.  We do not handle any of that.

Help!! I have sewer odors... - Monday, August 13, 2018

Have you ever walked into your bathroom and smelled an unusual odor? Well, that’s probably happened a few times, actually!

But have you ever clearly noticed a sewer smell in the bathroom that is just undeniably strange? If so, it could be coming from an external source – from the actual sewer itself. And if that’s the case, it’s important to act as soon as possible to get rid of it.

There are a few reasons this smell could appear out of nowhere in your home’s bathroom. It could be a smell coming from the toilet, or it could be something else. Check out our guide below to get a better idea of where exactly this sewer smell in the bathroom could be coming from.  For more information, check out the "Helpful info" tab.
