In the City, property owners are responsible for maintaining the sewer lateral from their property to the public sewer main. Proper maintenance can prevent costly damage to private property and the environment. The City’s Sewer Lateral Inspection Program (SLIP) was established in 2007 to address the increasing number of private and public sewer spills caused by issues with the private sewer laterals.
