Sewer Backups


If you experience a sewer backup, please contact Customer Service at (717) 665-2737  after hours. Sewer backups may result from problems in the customer’s line or in the utility’s line.

Manheim Area Water & Sewer Authority personnel is available 24/7 to investigate sewer backups and either advise the customer if it is a problem which occurred outside of the Authority's responsibility, or provide corrective action if the problem is within Authority’s responsibility. There is no charge to the customer for this service.  


Insurance companies  do offer the protection for backups of sewers, however many companies have varying amounts of coverage. Coverage is not always included in a basic homeowner's insurance policy.

Check your homeowner's insurance policy to see if you have coverage for backups. If you do not have coverage, consider adding it to your policy because in most cases the Municipalities insurance will not cover your damages in the event of an incident.
