Sewer Repair Services

In New Haven, Connecticut, experts are concerned about the water quality after the heavy rainfalls experienced in early mid-July. A bounty of beaches have been closed due to a hazardous level of bacteria in the water that could cause health problems. According to Kendall Barbery, the Green Infrastructure Program Manager for the Connecticut Fund for the Environment, “Part of this is because of storm water runoff and issues like sewer overflows.” With the heavy amount of water, pipes fill up too quickly and the water overflows into the waterways. This brings dirt, grease and sewage to the surface and into the water supply. Barbery adds, “Some people could develop things like an upset stomach, pink eye these are different symptoms of exposure to fecal coliform bacteria.”

Poor sewer systems that can’t withstand severe weather are dangerous to both our health and the environment. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, polluted water carries threats of dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, salmonella, E.coli and acute gastrointestinal illness. Sewage run-off is also detrimental to the wildlife and environment around it.

Sewer Repair

If you are near Riverside Connecticut, your sewage system could be at risk for a leak. Even if your pipe withstood extreme weather, each storm adds to its wear and decay. It is important to know the warning signs of a pipe that is past its prime. For example, if you have a slow drain that may be an indicator that there is a problem in your pipes. Or, if you hear gurgling noises your septic tank may be full and need pumping. Foul odor is one of the most common, and pungent symptoms of a leaking pipe. And if you notice patches of extra green grass, you may be dealing with a sewage leak.

If you have noticed any of those symptoms, or have had repeatedly bad weather, call a trusted plumbing service to determine if you need sewer repair. At Drain Doctor, we follow the most modern procedures to keep repair as uninvasive as possible, for as cheap as possible.
