What should I do if the sewer is backing up into my house?

Call Veolia immediately at 937-233-3292. Each home is also equipped with a sewer clean out that can be used as a relief valve. It is usually located somewhere close to the front of the house. In the event that the main sewer line would back up into your sewer lateral, removing the lid from this clean-out can relieve much of the pressure in the line and may keep it from backing up inside your home. To determine whether it is a sewer main line backing up or your sewer lateral line, see "What do I do if my drains won't drain"
