What are the causes of sewage backups?

Sewage back ups can be caused by floods from nearby waterways such as creeks, rivers or dams, and severe rainstorms which all place a strain on septic systems and sanitary sewers. Sanitary sewer and septic systems can become inundated with large volumes of ground or storm water entering the systems, which can cause backups of sewage into private property. Blockages in sanitary sewer systems can cause also cause backups to occur homes.

The most common illnesses associated with contact with sanitary sewage backup are gastrointestinal distress and illnesses with symptoms of skin rash and/or infection are caused by accidental contamination from surfaces where food is prepared, or hands that have come in contact with sewage backup. Skin rashes and infections from handling materials that have been contaminated by sewage backup.

  • Do not flush the toilets

  • Avoid any contact with the sewage material and keep children and pets well away.

  •  Wear protective gloves when handling or working in a contaminated with sewage.
