My sewer is backed up. Can someone from the City of Midland Wastewater Department come and fix it?
If your sewer is backing up into your home and you don't know if the problem stems from the system in your home or the City's sanitary sewer system, we recommend that you call the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 989-837-3500 and report the problem immediately. The Wastewater Treatment Plant is staffed 24 hours a day, and staff typically can respond within 45 minutes.

When responding to a call, City staff will inspect the City sewer in your area and determine if we can help with the problem. If we can't help, we recommend that you look for an established sewer cleaner or plumber, either of which can generally be found in the phone book.
