How could a sewer backup affect me?
If the backup occurs in a city maintained line the wastewater will normally overflow out of the lowest possible opening, which is usually a manhole. However, in some homes - especially those with basements, or where the lowest level is even with the sewer lines - the overflowing wastewater may exit through the home’s lower drains and toilets. Please call 715-262-5544 for more information.
