Sewer plugged? It might not be a simple clog

Sewer lines can get damaged when new power lines or natural gas pipes are installed underground. Sometimes, the two lines can intersect. This is called a cross bore.

The problem can go undetected for years. You could be injured trying to clear a clog from a cross bore.

If a cross bore is discovered:
  • Do not operate any equipment
  • Evacuate yourself and others
  • Call 911 and the natural gas company from a remote location
  • Eliminate any ignition source.
To learn more, download and print this brochure on cross bores.
