As a business owner, the last thing you want is more liability. It would be great if your financial and managerial obligations remained within the perimeter of your building. Unfortunately, you’re liable for any impact your business has on the people, structures, and environment around it—something your sewer system is very capable of doing.
Initial Costs of Sewer Services for Businesses
Unless your building is owned by a management company, business owners will usually have to pay upfront costs when moving into a new location. Your county or municipality’s water and sewer department will require you to submit various documents and purchase a water meter, a process that can cost several thousand dollars.
Sewer services don’t end after a water service agreement is signed and a meter is installed. It’s up to you to ensure that your plumbing and septic systems are properly maintained in order to minimize the impact your business has on your city’s wastewater system.
Common Sewer Services for Business
Your building’s sewer line is the last stop for wastewater leaving your business. After flowing through various pipes and subsystems, the sewer line flows directly to the nearest waste water treatment plant. Occasionally, solid materials and other obstructions make their way into the sewer line, preventing the water from properly flowing. In severe cases, these obstructions can case waste water to back up, reintroducing waste water into your business.
A consistent regimen of sewer services is the best bet against plumbing problems. Sewer lines are vulnerable to tree roots and other underground factors that can cause them to leak, clog or burst. Certain businesses should also be sure to maintain their own waste management devices, like grease traps and oil-water separators.
