In October 2020, Grant Hoxworth was in escrow on a home in the District’s service area. Due to the current owner’s plumbing history of the property, Grant decided to have a camera inspection performed on the private sewer lateral and contacted a local plumbing company. During the camera inspection, the plumbing company discovered a root mass in the sewer lateral that had the potential to cause a sewer backup.
