The Department of Public Works is responsible for the public sewer main, which is located in the streets and easements. The property owner is responsible for the house lateral, including the pipe that connects from the public sewer main to the house.
If you notice that you have a sewer backup in your drains please call Public Works at 208-746-1316. City personnel will troubleshoot. If the City’s main is flowing, the homeowner will then have to contact a plumber to correct the problem.
