Sewer Backups… What to do if it happens to you Sewer backups are usually unexpected and always create a mess. Who is going to fix the problem? That depends on whether the stoppage is in your private line or the St. Clair Township main. If it is in the Township’s main, we fix it as quickly as possible and keep you informed about what’s being done. If the problem is with the private line connecting your house to the Township main, we’ll tell you so you can get it fixed.
