Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where does the City's maintenance responsibility end?
A. The City only maintains the sewer main and service lateral within the public right-of-way. All maintenance outside the public right-of-way is the property owner's responsibility.
Q. Can I apply for sewer only?
A. No. The sewer is billed based on water meter readings. If water is available, a customer must have water and sewer service. Flat rate sewer can be obtained only if water is not available or until water is available.
