Sewer Lateral Program Details
WHAT PROPERTIES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM?
Residential properties of six units or less are eligible. Larger residential buildings and commercial properties are eligible for the low-interest loan program.
WHO OWNS THE SEWER PIPES THAT SERVE MY HOME?
The sewer pipe, located underneath the basement floor of the home, which runs through the house foundation, through the yard, and connects to the sewer main pipe in the street (or alley), is property of the homeowner. The sewer main pipe is property of the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.
WHAT REPAIRS ARE COVERED UNDER THE PROGRAM?
The program covers replacing defective pipe from the sewer main line in the street or alley to one foot outside the building foundation (which includes front porches). The program does not include pipe replacement in the foundation wall or underneath the basement floor. The program also does not cover the cost of cleaning by cabling, removal of tree roots or debris or hydroflushing. The program does not cover excavation work under porches.
DOES THE PROPERTY OWNER PAY A PORTION OF THE COST OF THE REPAIR?
There is no charge to the property owner for a sewer lateral repair under the program.
HOW DOES THE PROPERTY OWNER PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?
The property owner contacts the Maplewood Public Works Department (645-3600) when he or she has a sewer line that is defective. The property owner must present a bill or letter from a plumbing or sewer cabling company that indicates the pipe is broken, collapsed or severely shifted, or that the company was unable to open the sewer line. The property owner is responsible for having the line cabled and videotaped. Additionally, the homeowner must provide a copy of the tape to the Public Works Department. The property owner is not required to complete an application. After this confirmation is
received, the location is added to the program list. Referrals are also received from the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.
WHO REPAIRS THE BROKEN LINE?
The Maplewood Public Works Department excavates, removes the defective pipe, backfills the excavation, restores the pavement and sidewalk, and reseeds of the lawn. Drain layers, licensed by St. Louis County, replace the sewer pipe. Firms are awarded the pipe replacement work by competitive bidding on an annual basis.
*** 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.
