No matter where you live, the elements can have a severe effect on your sewer line. Sewer backup occurs when the city or municipal drainage system overflows and sends water back through the pipes and into your home. During the spring, snowmelt and increased rains cause a surge in the amount of drainage a sewer system can handle. The water and sewage can come from various sources including a septic tank, sewer, or storm drain.
