Sewer Lateral Program Details
This repair program applies to single-family residential units for which the sewer lateral fee is paid prior to any event causing repair. The owner shall provide proof of payment on most recent paid tax bills. Under the Sewer Lateral Repair Program, residents will pay a deposit of $125 which should be submitted with the resident’s application. If there is a break in the line, the $125 deposit will be refunded to the resident and the City will bear the cost for this cleaning in conjunction with this investigative stage, up to the maximum of $5,000. If no break is found and it is determined that the sewer is blocked, the $125 deposit will be retained by the City, and the resident will be responsible for the unblocking of the sewer lateral.
The City’s Sewer Lateral Fund finances the repair of defective sewer lateral lines. The program is funded through a $28 special assessment on residential property charged annually. The Sewer Lateral Repair Program pays for point-of-break repairs, which means that only the portion of the pipe that is defective is repaired. The City will only replace the entire sewer lateral if it is determined to be necessary by the City in consultation with a licensed plumber or drain layer.
The responsibility of the Sewer Lateral Repair Program is limited to the screening for the break or offset, excavation and repair of lateral pipe and backfilling in a workmanlike manner. The top six inches of the backfill material will be topsoil. The Sewer Lateral Repair Program will also be responsible for filling any machinery ruts and scraping any excess dirt created during repair and the replacement of sidewalks and parts of paved driveways and streets removed to repair defective laterals.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
1. If a blockage in your lateral occurs that cannot be removed by a plumber or sewer cleaning service, or a sinkhole is observed, you may have a broken sewer lateral. If such a condition exists, you should come to City Hall and fill out an application for the program. The Sewer Lateral Program will not pay for the cost of sewer cleaning to remove tree roots or buildups, rather this is the responsibility of the resident or homeowner.
*** 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.
