Provided expert witness services where a sewer was clogged by roots and backed up into a private residence. The contractor hired by the City to maintain the sewer lines was obligated to inspect every manhole but failed to inspect the manhole where the root blockage occurred because the cover of the manhole was buried at a shallow depth in a planter in the street. Expert testimony involved standards for use of sewer cleaning equipment.
