List of Sewer Spills in Pacific Grove

1991-2000, City of Pacific Grove records. (Records were only kept after 1990) Many spills are not listed. This is estimated to be a list of only 20% of all spills. The year of the great rains brought a record 18 spills in one year. At this time, we have been unable to find the newspaper article referring to it. City street clogs which cause city sewage to backup & spill into bathrooms are not recorded.
 

Overflow Pipe The exterior overflow pipe outlet is your best defense from having raw sewage flow into your bathtub or toilet. If there is a sewage clog, the sewage flows out of this pipe into your yard instead of into the bathroom. They cost about $250.00 to put in from a plumber.
