Water & Sewer

Water Line Leaks


If you observe water bubbling up or a continual wet spot in the pavement, ditch or grass areas near the road, contact the City of Barberton Utilities Department.

Sewage Backups


If you experience water backed up in your house, it's important to determine if it is a sanitary or storm sewer problem. All basement drains, sinks and toilets are connected to the sanitary sewer, unless you have a septic tank system.

Roof drains, garage drains and footer drains are connected to the storm sewer or ditches.  Storm and sanitary sewer main lines are the responsibility of the City of Barberton Utilities or Summit County Department of Environmental Services, depending upon where your home is located.  Lateral lines from your home are the responsibility of the property owner.

If you experience sanitary sewer main problems, contact the Summit County Department of Environmental Services or the City of Barberton Utilities Department.

If you experience storm sewer main problems, contact the Administration Office during regular business hours.

In case of emergencies after regular hours, call the Police Department at 330-825-2491.
