May I connect the roof drains of the house or a basement sump pump into the sewer lateral?


NO. There is a great deal of water that comes off a roof. If this were allowed to enter the sewer system, it would soon fill up the pipes and cause overloading, which results in basements becoming flooded. Sump pumps have the same affect and should be discharged to the ground outside, where it can run away.
