Question: Where does property owner Sewer Pipeline responsibility begin?
Identify the sewer clean out - Its location may vary along the lateral sewer pipeline, but typically is located near your property as shown above, or within 10 feet inside your property line.
Depending on how your home is situated relative to the sewer main, it may also be on the back side of your property.
Property owner sewer pipeline responsibility begins immediately after this sewer clear out and continues to the physical property.
Question: Where does Property Owner Water Pipeline responsibility begin?
Identify the water meter - Its location may vary along the lateral water pipeline anywhere from the utility easement region shown above, to within feet of your physical property.
Depending on how your home is situated relative to the water main, the water meter may also be on the back side of your property.
Property owner water pipeline responsibility begins immediately after this water meter and continue to the physical property.
PLEASE NOTE: During construction, it's possible crews will relocate meters closer to your property line. This becomes particularly important if the water meter is situated too close to your physical property.
Question: Will the city replace their portion of the lateral pipeline?
Yes. Unless immediate access is obstructed, crews will replace lateral pipeline from the sewer /water main to the sewer clear out/water meter.
