Sewer Division

Sewer Division
The Sewer Division is responsible for the routine maintenance of the City’s public sanitary sewer and storm sewer networks. Sewer Division also completes locate requests of underground City utilities for the One Call system. Routine maintenance items include: 

Sanitary Sewers

  • Jetting and cleaning sewer lines, including root removal
  • Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) inspections of sewer lines
  • Visual inspections of manholes

Storm Sewers

  • Jetting and cleaning of sewer lines and inlets
  • Visual inspections of stormwater manholes, inlets, and outfalls
  • Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) inspections of sewer lines
  • Maintenance and inspection of the City’s stormwater management BMPs
  • City Facility Runoff Control Plan inspections

Sewer Backups
Residents are reminded to notify Public Works (402-331-8927) or via a Citizens Request for Action when having home sewer lines professionally cleaned. Material removed from your sewer line is forced into the main sewer line. City crews will check and service the main sewer line to ensure that everything is flowing normally.

Also, residents should be aware that the City has a regular maintenance program for sewer lines. Most homeowners insurance policies do not automatically cover damage caused by sewer backups. This coverage is available, but is in addition to the normal policy. Ask your insurance agent for further information.
