Adopt these safety tips and take these action steps to reduce flooding.
Homeowners and renters can take these steps to reduce the impact of flooding. Property owners must also maintain their private infrastructure, including the sewer service line. While, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) has a responsibility to provide a reliable local sewer collection system within the current design standards, and improve stormwater management through engineering innovation including Green Stormwater Infrastructure projects.
Most of the city's sewer pipes are located in the rear of the property; a few are located in the street. Sewers are typically in the alley or the city easement in your backyard.
Property owners are responsible for the sewer service from the point at which it leaves the house (beneath the basement) and connects to the city sewer.
*In some neighborhoods the property owner is responsible for the alley.
These steps to disconnect downspout(s) are general recommendations. DWSD recommends hiring a licensed professional if additional work is needed.
