This includes the service line leading to the meter, the meter pit and the meter. The meter is the property of the water company and it is our responsibility to maintain it in proper working order, including the connections on both sides of the meter. Those  customers having meters located inside the buildings or residences will be responsible for maintaining any line past the service valve coming off the main line. A resident should not  attempt to remove the meter cover or tamper with the meter in any way. Should our service person notice that the meter has been tampered with, he will report this to the utility office. The customer may be billed for any damage or parts required if repairs are needed. All lines, connections, and appliances connected after the meter or service valve are the complete responsibility of the property owner.

This service will include a sewer connection or “lateral” connection at each property line, providing a sewer main is available. It is the customer’s responsibility to install a lateral according to our specifications, to maintain the lateral from the property line to the building, and to provide a cleanout within 3 feet of the building.For cleaning purposes, the customer is  responsible to maintain the entire lateral from the building to the main. The Wastewater Company will only maintain physical problems in the right-of-way.

Storm Water

It is a violation of Ordinance #2010-2 to allow stormwater to discharge into the sanitary collection system by connecting downspouts and sump pumps to a sanitary line. If installing perimeter drains and/or sump pits, these must be inspected by the Wastewater Department before backfilling is done to confirm that there are no connections to a sanitary sewer line.
