Sewer Laterals and resident responsibility 

POSTED: February 5, 2020


Do you know where your sewer lateral responsibility ends and the City’s begins?

There is a saying that goes, “a picture paints a thousand words”. Keeping that in mind, the Public Works Department put together an illustration to help private citizens understand where their responsibilities start and stop, and where the City’s responsibility begins.  This rendering is based on information in City Code, Section 18-307.

If you would like to find out more information about Public Works utilities, call and get it directly from the horse’s mouth. They can be reached by calling (865) 425-1875.
