How a Sewer System Works

Sewer System Diagram

A typical sanitary sewer system is constructed of a network of pipes, laterals and mains connecting to each building and transporting sewage to a wastewater plant.

A property owner's sewer pipe is called a sewer lateral and connects to a larger authority-maintained pipe called a sewer main.

Sewer laterals are the responsibility of the property owner and must be maintained by the property owner for the entire distance from the house to the sewer main.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a sewer lateral?

A sewer lateral is the sewer pipe connecting the property to the main sewer pipe of the Authority. This main sewer pipe is typically located in the street and connects other sewer laterals. The sewage from each property flows to the Authority's sewer main and eventually to the wastewater treatment plant.

Who owns the sewer lateral?

The sewer laterals are the responsibility of the property owner and must be maintained by the property owner for the entire distance from the house to the sewer main. The Authority is not responsible for the sewer lateral.

Invoice Cloud Service Update

Service Update - Verizon email addresses migrated to AOL service

Dear Valued Customer:

Invoice Cloud would like to make you aware of an issue affecting customers that use a Verizon email address that begins with a number or includes a dash.

Now that Verizon has migrated their email service to AOL, these types of emails are no longer passing validation with our email service. This means that customers with these attributes in their email address will not be able to use that email to register their accounts or during the payment process.

We have made several attempts to contact AOL, however because we are not a direct customer of theirs, they are unable to assist us. At this time, we can only suggest to customers that a different email address be used. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have questions regarding this, please call us at 901-737-8686 or email us at helpdesk@invoicecloud.com.

Thank you,
Invoice Cloud
