Where is the sanitary sewer service located?

The City of New Ulm Engineering Department can provide an ESTIMATED location of the sewer service based on the original record drawings. The sewer service can be televised and located by a plumber who has specialty equipment to provide this service. Along with locating the sewer service, the plumber can inspect the sewer service to see the condition of the pipes.

Under New Ulm Public Utilities (NUPU) Regulations, the sanitary sewer service is the responsibility of the property owner from the house to the connection at the City sewer main.
