Per the City of Modesto Municipal Code section 5-6.309, each user shall be responsible for the construction, maintenance, and repair of their sewer line from their property line out to the main in the street and/or alley. The Cost Share Program is set up to offer home owners financial assistance if repairs or maintenance are required for the sewer line located in the public right-of-way including street, sidewalk, or alley. The program reimburses 50% of the lowest of three licensed and approved plumber bid estimates for the final cost of the sewer line repair. The assistance is only for the portion of the sewer line located in the right-of-way and does not cover any sewer work on the property.
For more information on the Private Sewer Lateral Cost Share Program, please contact the program coordinator at 209-342-4712.
