On the Clock with Water Utilities’ Sanitary Sewer Cleaning Crew

On the Clock is a show that gives residents an inside look at the hard work city employees do every day to make Arlington a better community to live, learn, work and play.

This month’s episode, hosted by City Manager Trey Yelverton, gives residents a behind-the-scenes look at the Water Utilities’ Sanitary Sewer Cleaning Crew.

This crew provides critical preventative maintenance to ensure Arlington’s vast sanitary sewer system is functioning properly.  The team also uses technology to inspect the insides of pipes for defects, blockages or other issues that could cause problems for customers.

Fats, oils and grease poured down the drain can harden and stick to the insides of pipes, causing clogs and sewer backups. Learn what products don’t belong in your drains by  visiting the Defend Your Drains website.

Arlington customers who suspect a sewer overflow can contact the Water Utilities at 817-459-5900.
