City Sewer Hook Up

Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR

Sewer Hook Up from Pacific Plumbing And Drain in Vancouver WA and Portland ORUrban areas and cities often use sewer systems. Smaller communities typically use individual septic tank systems. As these little towns grow, the opportunity to hook a septic system up to a government sewer also grows. Homeowners find this an attractive option since septic tank care and maintenance can be a hassle.

Benefits of City Sewer Hook Ups

City sewer hookup offers peace of mind. The city maintains the system to code, and it ensures that water is treated properly. Shared sewer hookup systems also hold wastewater in a particular treatment area for the local population’s safety. The city systems handle heavy loads of sewage and tolerate large amounts of rain that quickly overwhelms a home-based septic tank.

  • The city is responsible for system maintenance.
  • The home’s wastewater is processed at a different location.
  • The sewer system handles torrential rainstorms and floods.

Problems with Septic Systems

Septic tanks are cleaned by bacterial micro-organisms. The cleansed water is then released back into the environment. Problems arise when septic systems are not well maintained. These septic tanks can become a serious problem–both for the homeowner and for the surrounding environment.

When untreated wastewater gets into the groundwater, it contaminates the surface water and threatens the public’s health. Sewage, if not treated properly, spreads diseases such as hepatitis and dysentery. Drinking contaminated water causes illness. This tainted water also gets into local lakes and streams. Insects that breed in these areas can also spread these diseases.
