What steps do I take if my sewer lateral becomes blocked?
If you experience a blockage of your sewer lateral service line, the first thing to do is have your sewer lateral cabled. Cabling a blocked sewer lateral is a home maintenance expense, thus the cost of cabling is not reimbursable under this insurance program. If the blockage is not resolved by cabling of the line, you should contact Angie Shoemate at 636-227-9660 about filing an application with the city.
