For Abutting Property Owners (Reclaim Streets):

Water: DPW will be replacing galvanized water services in the roadway at no cost to property owners before paving. Replacement of other water service line material types (e.g. copper i nthe roadway) are eligible for 50% cost share. The cost of service work outside the roadway, by ordinance, is fully the responsibility of the property owner. Please not that DPW-Water can offer 12-month payment plans for waterline work. If our records show you have a galvanized water service or unknown service type, you will recieve and additional letter from DPW.

Sewer: Sewer services are owner responsibility, by ordinance. Many sewer services are at risk of being in poor or failing condition.

Deadlines: Please refer to the property owner letter above for deadlines.

To the extent it is feasible, we will try to accommodate your work schedule with ours. No construction permits involving excavations within the City’s right-of-way will be issued on a street listed above after the City has completed this year’s paving project.  It is important that you notify us if you have any plans (Which may include replacing and existing or installing a new sewer, water, gas, communication or buried electrical service).  Please call DPW with question or to schedule work at 863-9094.
