EMERGENCIES

It is rare, but occasionally sewer and water problems do happen. If you notice water coming out of the ground that shouldn’t be or if you have a slow or noisy sewer, don’t hesitate to call the Department of Public Works. An “On Call” worker is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The DPW will be able to take care of the problem if it is the City’s responsibility or can give you direction on how to take care of the problem if it is your responsibility. Problems caught early on are much easier to deal with before any real damage is done. Please call 989-289-6919 to report emergency sewer or water issues.
