Sewer Lateral Insurance Program
Sewer Lateral Program Details
The City’s participation in the MSD Sewer Lateral Repair Program. St. Louis County government administers the entire program that includes collecting an annual $50.00 tax based fee.
Should you need a line repaired, you will need to follow a process, which is outlined as follows:
First, you need to contact a master plumber to have a camera test run to verify that there is a break in the line. The program does not cover this cost, so you will need to pay the plumber directly.
Next, once a break has been verified, you need to submit an application to the County for repair. Applications can be obtained in three ways.
- If the master plumber is on the County’s bid list, you should be able to obtain an application through him or her.
- You can phone the St. Louis County Sewer Lateral Repair Program office at (314) 615-8427, to request an application.
- You can visit this link to apply online.
*** Please Note: Most municipalities, cities, and counties with sewer lateral programs limit reimbursements and expenses to the amount available in the Fund at any time. Some offer waiting lists and reimbursements out of the next year’s Fund revenue. Funds typically are on a first-come, first-served basis. You should always check on fund availability. Additionally, most municipalities will require proof of PAID real estate tax bills, city fees, taxes, including personal property taxes, and trash fees if applicable for eligibility to participate in any available programs.
