Sewer Lateral Program Details
Inquiries should be directed to the City Clerk of the City of Charlack.
The owner of a single-family home, duplex or apartment building containing not more than six (6) dwelling units may recover eighty percent (80%) up to three thousand five hundred dollars ($3,500.00) of the cost for repairing defective lateral sewer service lines serving the property of the owner. Applications for reimbursement must adhere to the City’s policy set forth in this document.
The City will authorize the repair of a defective sewer lateral if, after investigation, it is found to be crushed beyond the control of the property owner except for an act of God (i.e., earthquake, etc.) or if, as a result of pipe cracks or leaking joints, tree roots or soil have infiltrated the pipe resulting in a blockage of the pipe rendering the lateral not functional. Simple blockage that can be corrected by sewer cleaning or rodding will not be covered under this program.
The responsibility of the City is limited to excavation and repair of the lateral pipe and backfilling in a workmanlike manner. It will be the responsibility of the property owner to restore landscaping and ground cover, including grass, in whatever manner they choose. The City will not be responsible for restoration of the yard to a grass or landscaped surface.
The City reserves the right to reject any portion of the property owner’s bill which does not fall within the reasonable and customary costs for such a project. The City will also have the right to reject ancillary costs which are deemed excessive or unnecessary.
If an owner is experiencing a problem with the lateral sewer service line, the owner should contact a plumbing company or drain and sewer cleaning company to have the line cabled. The cost of cleaning out the sewer line will not be a reimbursable cost item. If the problem is not resolved by cabling of the line, the property owner should contact the Public Works Department or the office of the City Clerk at Charlack City Hall (#427-4715) between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.
*** 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.
