Utility Service Line Incentive Program

WATER AND SEWER SERVICE LINE REPLACEMENT INCENTIVE PROGRAM

Purpose
The purpose of the Water and Sewer Service Line Replacement 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 to be leaking.

Program
This program was created to encourage Fraser homeowners to replace private service lines that have been identified to be leaking before the useful life of these lines deteriorates to the point that the line terminally fails. Funding for this program will come from the respective Enterprise Funds and may be terminated at anytime, at the discretion of the Town.

Why Should I Replace My 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 system for unnecessary treatment, again costing utility customers unnecessary expenses and potential rate increases for system upgrades.

What is a 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.
