To report a sewer backup, contact Public Works at (701) 845-0380.
If there is sewer backup into your premise, it does not mean the City is liable for any resultant damage or cleanup costs. In fact, in most instances of a sewer backup, there is no liability on the part of the City.
Contact your insurance agent to request an endorsement to your homeowner or business insurance that provides for cleanup costs and damage to your premises or personal property caused by a sewer backup. This will ensure funds are available in the instance of sewer backup for you to cleanup and repair any damage.
