Sewer Pipe Responsibility

The District (RVSD) is responsible for public sewer pipelines and pump stations which collect, pump and transport wastewater to the Central Marin Sanitation Agency for treatment. 

Residents and businesses are responsible for private pipes (sewer laterals) that extend from homes or businesses and connect to District sewer pipelines.

If you have a public sewer emergency, such as a manhole overflow, leaking pipe or smell or see sewage on the ground, please contact us immediately for 24-hour response at (415) 259-2949.

You can also email comments or questions to Info@rvsd.org.

Additional Information

For help addressing problems with private property sewer problem or emergency, please contact a licensed plumbing contractor. Make sure any plumber you hire for a private property sewer emergency is familiar with District policies and programs.
