Even with an aggressive maintenance schedule, stoppages can occur and lead to sanitary sewer overflows. This is where we need the public's help to keep our communities safe. If you were to come across any seeping or overflowing water that looks suspicious, please contact call the District as soon as possible Monday to Friday 7:30 am to 4:30 pm at (408) 378-2407, press 2 or after hours at (408) 299-2507.
Odors can be many things and sometimes misleading. At the same time odors can indicate a problem that needs immediate attention for our public safety. If you come across an odor that can be described as having a sewage smell, it is best to contact the District so our team can confirm the origin is not related to the collection system.
