Among the most expensive repairs to a sewer service is from damage caused by tree roots growing inside sewer pipes.

Rain and runoff from local creeks filled the reservoir during the winter months. As temperatures warmed, the melting snowpack sent down a steady stream of water to refill the lake as more than a half million people used its water for drinking, washing, irrigating, etc. and government agencies released it downstream for the environment.
