Lakeland sewer customers are urged to call City Hall first if you have a sewer backup (867-2717 during business hours or 867-8920 after hours and weekends).
City personnel will check to see where the blockage is. If the City sewer lines are ok, you will be advised to call a private company to clean out your sewer line.
If the problem is in the public sewer, the problem will be fixed at no charge. In addition to saving time, it also may save you money. If you call a private sewer cleaning company first, you may be charged even if the problem is in the public sewer.
In case of a sewer backup, call the City first!
