Conifer roots length ?

I have a 15 foot high conifer about 35 years old which is about 14 foot away from my house and about 22 foot from my sewer manhole.
Last week I decided to check the manhole in case of blockages or brick wall damage and noticed a number of very thin roots about 1/8" diameter poking through the side walls brickwork all coming from the direction of the conifer. I assume these are from the conifer.
Would you recommend removal or cutting back on the conifer tree ?
I am open to any suggestions and help, thanks from Neale.
