Traditionally sewer service to a house is provided by a “gravity” line where the drain lines from the house, flow down with gravity to the main sewer lines. Many Brentwood homes have a low pressure sewer which requires the use of sewage grinder pumps to move sewage from a house to the city sewer lines.Latest Water Quality Report
