Sanitary Sewer Treatments

Root Treatment Will Prevent Sewer Blockages


2022 Program - Sewers in some areas of the community will be treated for root-related blockages in 2022. The designated sewers either have been treated previously or have been identified recently as posing potential problems.

Residents in the immediate areas will be notified by flyer.

All products used to treat the sewers are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

A certified pesticide applicator from Dukes Root Control and a Mt. Lebanon Public Works inspector are on the site at all times. The foam or herbicide used never comes in contact with anything other than the inside of the sanitary sewer system.

For More Information

Mt. Lebanon has found that this routine treatment of our aging sewer system significantly reduces the number of blockages and backups. If you have questions, please call Public Works Department at (412) 343-3403.
