What is an over head sewer? It is called an over head sewer because in one version of piping the sewer will literally run over head. The actual philosophy is however just that the plumbing or sewer in the lowest level or basement does not flow out by gravity. Instead the lowest level flows into a pit in the floor and then it is pumped out and into the gravity sewer. The benefit of this type of system is that the gravity sewer cannot back up and flood the lowest level. This is such a good design that most towns, cities and municipalities require this type of system in all new construction.
