24 Hour Emergency Service
Emergency Service for Water or Sewer
Town of Lincoln staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to emergencies relating to:
- Water emergencies such as watermain breaks
- Sewer emergencies such as sewer back-ups
Residential and commercial property owners who experience sewer back-ups can either call a private contractor or the Town to undertake the necessary repair work.
Town staff can clean and perform a video inspection of sewer services, however, there is a cost for this service if the problem is found to be on the private owner portion of the service.
If a private contractor is hired to clear a blockage on a sewer service, the homeowner will be responsible for all charges regardless of whether the blockage is on the private or public side of the service.
