Does the City offer free, annual sewer cleanings to homeowners?
No. Sewer clean out services are not free. Our fees vary and are posted here.
However, at our discretion, the City may provide one (1) free video inspection of your private sewer lateral during regular hours (as posted here). These inspections use a scope and are performed on an as-requested basis. They may be postponed when staff are required to address higher priority situations (e.g. flooding and sewer lateral blockages).
If you're simply looking to reduce the risk of sewer backups, we've posted a handy guide here. You can also learn more about avoiding the common sources of sewer blockages here.
To request any service, please contact our Service Centre directly at 905-356-1355 (available 24/7). For non-emergencies only, you can also email us at MWRequests@niagarafalls.ca.Categories: Municipal Works, Sewer Lateral
