If you need to locate your cleanout stempipe to deal with a sewer line blockage, the following may be helpful.

How to Locate?

The cleanout is a capped pipe, usually, but not always, located near the property line that rises from your sewer line to about 4-inches above ground level.  

As a property owner, you are responsible for your cleanout.  

If the cleanout is buried, a registered plumber should be able to locate and raise it for you. 

If it is hidden, you may be able to find it by visiting the Engineering Records Website or by calling the DPW File room at (410) 222-7049.  

The DPW File Room is located at:

2662 Riva Road, 2nd Floor
