I have slow drainage through my toilets, drains. What can I do about it?

Check to see if your neighbors are having a similar slow drainage problem. Call the City Wastewater Division and we will check the mains. City crews will notify you if the problem is in the City main or not. If the city does not have a problem you will need to call a plumber to clean your lateral.
