Water and sewer repair costs
Water leaks or floods on private property
Property owners will not be charged for the repair if:
- The source of the leak is determined to be on the portion of the water line owned by the City (the shut-off valve at the property line, and the water line that connects the valve to City water main), and
- No prior work has been undertaken that causes damage to the water system
However, if the leaks are on the property owner's side of the water line shut-off valve, then the property owner will be invoiced for the visit. The City will turn off the water, if necessary, for the property owner to repair the leak.
