The city of Kirkwood is participating in a Sewer Lateral Insurance Program to assist homeowners with the cost of repairs to residential sewer lateral service lines. Average costs of these repairs are typically $3,000 or more. The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District does not pay for sewer lateral repairs. If you experience a blockage of your lateral sewer service line, the first thing to do is have your sewer lateral cabled. Cabling a blocked lateral is a home maintenance expense, therefore, the cost of cabling is not reimbursable under this insurance program. A $400 deposit is required for the city to conduct a video inspection and cable the line if necessary. The City will authorize you to make arrangements with a City contractor to video inspect the line. The cost of the inspection, cabling, cleaning, and/or unclogging will be deducted from the deposit and the remaining deposit refunded to you.
Kirkwood’s program applies to residential property containing six or fewer dwelling units. All residential condominiums are also included under the Sewer Lateral Program. The cost of the program is funded through an annual fee of $28, which will be placed on the property owner’s County property tax bill. In the event that accessory structures such as fences, sheds, garages, etc. are in the path of the lateral and lie over the damaged portion of the lateral, the City reserves the right to reroute the lateral, or to require any fences, landscaping or accessory structures to be moved at your expense.

Many of us are experiencing a rainy season now that summer is in full swing. Along with the sunny delights and fanfare this time of year brings, there is also a need to think about the proper functioning of our drainage systems where we live. It is important to know to what extent a drainage issue is prevalent. In order to do this, a qualified fully licensed professional is needed for drain pipe cleaning. This will also maximize your awareness of the health of the pipelines in your home. Here are a few suggestions when seeking the help of an expert: 1. Get referrals from people you know. Word of mouth advertising speaks volumes on the overall satisfaction of previous jobs. 2. Check for a license to operate within your state. 3. Do a search for reviews and feedback online. This will help you in finding your best options. 4. Ask for references.

Summer is indeed here in all its glory. We know that means rainfall is here, too. In fact, in many parts of the Country we have had record setting storms. Precipitation can heavily contribute to an overloaded sewer system. As a nation, we have over 700 communities that utilize combined sewer systems. There are some Cities that have separate sewer systems but this is no small financial investment. Even so, municipalities have the burden of making sure these systems are functioning. It can pose a health risk and even more financial strain if they are not.
There are small contributions the residents of any community can make to keep overflows to a minimum. With a combined effort, each small attempt will add up to bigger and better successes. A few good suggestions are: 1. use less water during a storm. Showering, flushing the toilet and doing laundry should be avoided, if possible. 2. Please don’t litter. Strom drains can be affected when garbage is near and subsequently can raise the possibility of overflows even in dry weather. 3. When in doubt of how to accurately dispose of household products, consult with your local waste management dept. 4. You’ll save money on your water bill AND be a team player at the same time with a mindful approach to how much water you are using. Also, remember to fix any leaky areas in your home.
