FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I open/close an account?
Once you have bought/sold the property, you will need to send a copy of the closing statement showing the name of the new legal owner. You may send by email info@ercpsd.net, fax (803) 736-5399, mail or visit our office at 704 Ross Rd, Columbia, SC 29223.
Do I need a sewer back flow preventer?
Yes. All customers of East Richland County Public Service District must have a sewer back flow preventer valve installed on your sewer line up by your home/business. Sanitary sewers work by the force and principal of gravity. Wastewater flows in the direction of the natural slope of the pipe away from your home/business. When a stoppage occurs, water will travel back into your home/business. If damages occur due to a sewage backup in the home/business and no back flow valve is installed, the District wil not be held responsible. This valve must be installed at the owner's expense. Please contact a licensed & reputable plumber to have your line checked for a sewer back flow preventer valve and if necessary have one installed for your protection.
