Where will the new water/sewer services be located for my residence?

For single-family residential homes, in some cases you may choose the location along your property boundary (street right-of-way line) where the water / sewer service will be installed. In this case, when you pay connection fees, wood stakes will be provided to you to mark the desired locations. The blue stake is for water service; the brown stake is for sewer service. The City's Utility personnel will inform you if the location of your stake(s) needs to be adjusted. Generally, water / sewer services are not allowed inside driveways or other paved areas unless specifically approved in advance and in writing by the Public Works Department.

Existing Conditions

There may be existing conditions both above and below ground that might prevent a service line from being installed in a particular place, for example: trees, roots, landscape walls, other existing utilities. It is strongly recommended that you and your plumber coordinate closely with the City for all service line locations. The City will not be responsible for building service lines installed to locations that are unacceptable for City taps to be made. Your water meter and sewer cleanout / valve will be placed at the property line. On rare occasions when the City must install the meter or sewer cleanout / valve on private property, a utility easement will be required.
