Sewer Lateral (pipe) Lining and Repair Subsidy

 

Sewer laterals that are in substandard condition (e.g., cracks, holes, root damage) may create blockages or poor drainage that can prevent wastewater from flowing from your home to the municipal sanitary sewer system. This can leave your home at risk for sewer back up and basement flooding.
