Answer: A Puzzled And Perplexed Homeowner

Unfortunately installing utility poles in NYC can be a tricky business. It’s extremely hard to tell where all underground utility lines may lie, especially a house sewer which is hard to trace. A drain line frequently does run in a straight line towards the NYC sewer. In the case of this sewer line problem Balkan supplied photos of the pipe repairs and the old drain line to verify the cause of the sewer problem. The utility contractor was contacted and acted in a most professional manner. With all parties working together in a reasonable manner the sewer problem was addressed, including the question of responsibility, without any yelling and screaming. The yelling and screaming was saved for New Years Eve.
