If you discover sewage backing up through your basement floor drain, you are asked to please notify the City prior to contacting a plumber. This allows the City to determine whether the blockage causing the back-up is located in the sewer main or in the sewer lateral. If the blockage is in the main, City crews will be able to correct it in the shortest time frame possible. If the blockage is in the house’s lateral, City crews will instruct you to call a plumber. Please contact City Hall if you experience a basement back-up at 262-284-2600 during normal business hours, or, outside of normal business hours, contact the Port Washington Police Department at 262-284-2611.
