Utility Service Line Incentive Program

Purpose

The purpose of the Water and Sewer Service Line Incentive Program is to create a reasonable and cost effective policy which encourages property owners to replace their private service lines that have been identified as in need of repair or replacement. 

Program

This program was created to encourage Fraser property owners to replace private service lines that have been identified to be in need of repair or replacement before the useful life of these lines deteriorates to the point that the line terminally fails. Funding for this program is at the discretion of the Town Board and may be terminated at anytime. 

Why You Should Replace Your Service Line(s)

Leaking water lines waste valuable resources and customer dollars producing water that is never consumed. Leaking sanitary sewer lines can allow excessive groundwater infiltration into the sewer collection system for unnecessary treatment, again costing utility customers unnecessary expenses and potential rate increases for costly system upgrades.

Private Service Line

It is the portion of pipe (water or sewer) where it is tapped into the respective Town-owned main pipe in the public right-of-way (ROW) and serves the adjoining dwelling.
