My service is off, how can I get it turned back on?

The only way to be sure is to ask if anyone else in the neighborhood lost their electric or water service.  If so, report it as a possible electric outage or water main break.  If no one else in the neighborhood has lost service, call (423) 447-2919 for Customer Service.

What can I do to prevent sewer back ups?

To help prevent sewer main or lateral issues please do not dispose of household grease, diapers, wipes, or anything other than toilet paper into toilets.

What is F.O.G.?

Fats, oils, and grease from food preparation, packaged foods and food scraps.  FOG is discharged not only by residents, but also by businesses.

Who should I contact if my sewer is backed up?

If you are experiencing a sewer backup, please call (423) 447-2919, and a service crew will come and inspect the sanitary sewer main in your area.  They will contact you and let you know if it is the city’s problem or the home owners problem and advise you on the situation.

How are sewer mains cleaned?

We use a machine called an aquatech to jet the mains with high water pressure.  This machine is also used to unblock any obstruction in the line that may cause a backup.
