Sewer Lateral Program Details
The City of Oakland offers residents a Sewer Lateral Repair Program, which works as a reimbursement program to residents/owners in order to help defray the cost of repairing collapsed sewer laterals between the house and the main.
This is how the program works:
If you think you have a collapsed pipe, contact the plumber of your choice and have him cable the line at your expense. Once you have received the tape, contact the City Administrator at 314-416-0026. An appointment will be made to review the tape to verify eligibility of the program. Tree roots are not covered under this program. If eligible, the resident hires a contractor to do the repair and then pays for the repair in full. Copies of the actual bill and receipt of payment are then sent to City of Oakland, P. O. Box 220511, St. Louis, MO 63122 and reimbursement of up to $2,500 (this reimbursement cap is set by the Board of Aldermen and can be changed based on the funds available) will be sent to the resident/owner after the voucher is approved at the next scheduled Board of Aldermen meeting.
About the program:
All residential dwellings with six (6) or fewer units are covered under this program within Oakland city limits. The Program reimburses point-of-break repairs, which means that only the portion of the pipe that is defective is repaired. The City reimburses diagnotic and repair charges up to a maximum of $2,500 per repair of a sewer lateral. All other charges for a single repair are the responsibility of the homeowner of the covered sewer lateral repair and are expected to be paid at the time the lateral is repaired, so that reimbursement funds can be granted.
*** 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.
