During normal business, contact the Public Works and Engineering Offices at 865-380-4800. After hours, on holidays, and on weekends call the after-hours emergency number: 865-380-4921. A Water and Wastewater crew will be dispatched to determine the probable cause of the problem.
If the problem is determined to be a blockage in the City’s sewer main, the crew will clear the blockage then verify with the customer that their backup has stopped. If the main is clear or the customer’s backup continues after clearing the main, the customer will be advised to contact a plumber for repairs.
