For your safety, please
NEVER open a sewer manhole!
Our trained employees have the safety equipment necessary to
check the manholes to make sure that there are no dangerous gases
present. In addition, our manhole covers are very heavy; lifting
them could hurt your back. The Collection Services Team at Union
Sanitary District will respond, within one hour, to your request
for service, 24-hours a day. Please call us first if you experience
any of these inconveniences at (510) 477-7500.

The Collection Services Team routinely maintains our sewer mains
to keep them flowing freely. We televise-inspect and clean the lines
on a scheduled basis. But did you know that there are some things
that you too can do to maintain laterals?
