Why did you put a manhole in my yard while I was at work?
When manholes are built the tops of the manholes are left accessible. Later when homes and businesses are built manholes are occasionally buried in yards and driveways. The Sewer Department Routine Cleaning Crew usually locates these "lost" manholes when they clean the sewers. The buried manholes are then turned over to the Repair Crew that adjusts the manholes to grade so they are accessible again. Manholes can be adjusted using the 16 inches of allowable adjustment between the manhole cone and frame.
