Frequently Asked Questions

Call the sewer district at 573-443-2774. The district provides emergency service 24 hours a day, seven days a week at no extra charge. We will check to see if there is a problem in the part of the system the sewer district maintains that may be affecting your private system.

The sewer line between the house and the main line and the connection to the main is the homeowner’s responsibility. The sewer district will clear the main if there is a problem; if there is no problem in the main, then the homeowner will be advised to call a plumber to check their private line.

The District is funded by the user fees it collects. The District does not receive any tax funding.

The flags are on your property because a request was made to Missouri One Call (MO1Call) to locate underground utilities. Each color represents a different utility or has a different meaning.

New Customer’s First Bill: Rather than charge a deposit, the Sewer District bills one month in advance. This first bill covers service from your connect date up to and including one month beyond your billing date. In other words, you are being billed for a partial month plus at least one full month of service. (Please note “# Days” on the billing statement.) Your next bill will cover one month only.
