[ARCHIVED] Pueblo West Sewer Main Inspections and Cleaning

The Pueblo West Utilities Department takes proactive measures to maintain our sewer system. Cleaning and inspecting District main sewer lines are essential to properly maintain a functioning system.

This work is primarily done during spring through fall. We do this work as time and weather permits. At any point in time, a cleaning crew could be in an area where there are main sewer lines.

At times during and after the cleaning process, a homeowner may experience: toilets gurgling, sewer odor or even some backups into the homes. Most times a backup event is caused due to the service lateral (lines between buildings and the main line) being clogged and/or the P trap has standing debris.

(P trap is a U-shaped section of pipe that holds water and prevents odorous gas in the plumbing drains and sewers from rising up through a toilet, sink, or floor drain into a home or business.)
