Private Sewage Systems And Flooding

Flooding of a private sewage system can be a hazardous situation for homeowners. It may result in sewage backing-up into the home and/or contaminating the drinking water supply resulting in exposure to contaminants. When flooding or saturated soil conditions persist, a private sewage system cannot function properly.

For further information please contact the Health Department Environmental Help Line at 1-888-777-9613

In case of a Municipal sewer back up into your home please contact the Regional Municipality of Durham Works Department.
