Customer vs. SacSewer Responsibility

Customer vs. SacSewer Responsibility


It’s important to understand which part of the sewer system is a customer’s responsibility and which part is SacSewer’s responsibility.

SacSewer owns, operates, and maintains a network of 4,500 miles of main line and lower lateral pipes within a 270 square-mile area. However, there are certain sections of the sewer pipes that our customers are responsible for maintaining. To learn more about which sections we maintain – and which are the responsibility of our customers – a detailed sewer maintenance diagram is provided here for your reference.
