What can be done to fix a manhole cover that rattles every time a vehicle rolls over it?

The District has two main types of sewer structures:

  1. Manholes that vary in size from 25 to 42 inches in diameter and
  2. Rodding inlets which are round or oval and vary in size from 9 to 18 inches in diameter

Both structures have solid covers with "Sanitary Sewer" normally imprinted on top. Occasionally, a separation between the base and the cover on either type of structure may cause the cover to rattle when a vehicle rolls over it. Call the District at 415-259-2949 to report a rattling manhole or rodding inlet cover.
