Dealing with a Seasonal Sewer Problem

Most people look forward to everything that spring has to offer. Unless they have bad pollen allergies, they love to smell the flowers, watch the snow melt, and see the animals coming out. I don’t share in this joy, because I know what is coming with the spring. Each spring, my neighborhood gets a lot of rain, which means that a lot of debris will be washed into the sewers. When this debris builds up, I eventually have to call for sewer cleaning in Rockland County NY, otherwise the system will become backed up and it won’t be a pretty sight for anyone.

Last year, a lot of tree debris went into the sewers and it backed up so badly that some of the homes were experiencing items coming up in their toilets. Some tried to flush the toilets, only to have the toilets overflow. I was lucky enough not to have this happen to me, but if it did, I would have been livid. The cleanup from having something like that happen is terrible, especially when there is a chance that there may be some fecal matter mixed in with the debris. You would have to disinfect everything that the water touches.

If the sewer becomes backed up again, I’m going to talk to the other people in the neighborhood and start a petition. The only way to have anything done is to make people aware of what you want. The petition will be sent to our local government in order to get them to spend money to fix our sewer problem. There has to be something that can be done to keep the system from backing up. If they don’t want to do anything about it, we’ll alert the local news outlets and have the story ran on every channel.
