Lateral Maintenance Program
What is the Lateral Maintenance Program?
It's not as complicated as it sounds. It might surprise you to know that the pipe that carries water from your curb to your house is on your property and is actually owned by you. Unfortunately, if something would happen to that line, (a leak or break, etc.) it would be your responsibility to repair it.
Under the Lateral Maintenance program if anything happens to your water service line, we'll take care of it at no additional cost to you. It basically offers protection against the possibility of costly repair bills and covers any service line damages from the curb stop to the outside wall of your home or building. Frozen water lines are not covered as a "defect" under the program.
The charge for this program is minimal:
For Residential- $10 per year
3/4" and 1" connections- $18 per year
1 1/2" and 2" connections- $30 per year

Or learn more about this program by reading our on-line brochure.
Once you've been approved for the program, you never have to reapply. Can't remember if you enrolled? Check your bill. If you are in the program, there will be a line item on your bill called "LATMAIN - RESIDENTIAL." If you are billed quarterly there will be a charge of $2.50/quarter; if you are billed monthly there will be a charge of $0.83/month.
