Report a Sewer Overflow
Call us first, at 707-644-8949, option 3. If you have a sewer backup or overflow, let us inspect it before you call a plumber. If the problem is in the District's part of the line, we will take care of it. If you require a plumbing repair because the problem is in your sewer lateral, we may be able to offset the cost, if you apply for and are approved in advance through our Upper Lateral Program.
If you see flooding, please call us immediately at 707-644-8949, option 3. This is a 24-hour hotline.

Preparing for Emergencies
Emergencies can take many forms: floods, fires and earthquakes are just a few. The Solano Co. Office of Emergency Services reminds us to prepare our families when it comes to emergencies:
- Create a family communications plan so you can get in touch with family members.
- Give copies of contact information and meeting locations to everyone in your family.
- Place a laminated copy and medical information to keep in your child's backpack.
- Discuss choices for communicating: telephones, cell phones, email, and bulletin boards.
- Make sure you know the emergency plan at your child's school.
- Make a decision about where family members will meet in case you cannot get home during an emergency. Show your kids the meeting spots so they are familiar finding them on their own.
- Discuss how you can protect your pets during an emergency. Create a pet preparedness kit.
- Have the kids do a "scavenger hunt" for disaster supplies you will need to create a family disaster kit. For example, flashlight, batteries, radio, non-perishable foods, water, warm clothing. Copies of your plan should be kept in your disaster kit in case you need to leave in a hurry.
- Ask kids to discuss their concerns and feelings. Do they understand the plan and why it is needed?
The more we are prepared, the easier it will be to keep our families feeling safe and secure if an emergency occurs. You can visit the Solano County Office of Emergency Services webpage for more ideas about how to prepare your family for emergencies.
