The City of Sheboygan makes every effort to be responsive to a resident’s needs and concerns when a sewer backup occurs. The City has a sewer crew whose sole duty is to inspect, clean, and maintain sewers on a daily basis. They are available on a 7-day a week, 24-hour a day basis to minimize the possibility of sewer problems. Backed up sewer lines, line breaks, sewage odors, and overflowing manholes are considered an emergency. If you experience a sewer problem, please call the Municipal Service Building:
- 920-459-3440 during business hours
- 920-459-3448 after 4 pm or on weekends or holidays
