Water and Sewer Department
SANITARY SEWER BACK – UP GUIDELINES
Call the Water & Sewer Department at 586-466-1425 during normal business hours (8am-4:30pm), or call the after hours emergency number at 586-468-4155 after normal business hours, weekends, and holidays. A representative of the department will respond to determine if the sewer main is blocked. The Township is responsible for the cleaning of any blockage in the sewer main only. The homeowner/resident is responsible for the cleaning/removing of any blockage in the sewer lead from the building up to the sewer main.
In compliance with Public Act 222, if you experience an overflow or backup of the sewage disposal system, you must file a written claim with Harrison Township within 45 days after the overflow or back – up was discovered. Failure to provide the required notice will prevent recovery of damages.
