The video recording must be submitted to the municipal workshop for the sector. If it turns out that the problem is in the municipal right of way, and does not stem from the property, Gatineau may reimburse the costs incurred for renting the video equipment after the video of the inspection has been reviewed by the Service des travaux publics.
A Service des travaux publics employee will inspect the sewer line near your home to determine whether the back-up is caused by an obstruction under the street.
If it turns out that the obstruction is on your property, it will be up to you to have it corrected.
Inform the greffier in writing within fifteen (15) days after the event, and mail it to:
Ville de Gatineau
PO BOX 1970, STN Hull
Gatineau QC J8X 3Y9
You will find the appropriate claim form on the municipal Web site
