Lateral Definition

All Lateral Sewers or Building Sewers were initially installed (or will be installed) by owners of property within the District’s boundaries whose property is served by the District. Lateral Sewers or Building Sewers are not part of the District’s system. The District has no responsibility for any Lateral Sewer or Building Sewer. 
All ownership, maintenance, repairs, and replacements of any Lateral Sewer or Building Sewer are the sole responsibility of the property owner whose property is served by the District. The term “Lateral Sewer” is defined as follows: “That portion of any sewer and all parts thereof beginning at the plumbing outlet of any building, structure, institutional, industrial, or other structure or facility and running to the District Main Sewer, including the connection to the District Main Sewer (e.g., Inserta Tee, wye, nose-on, etc.). The terms “Lateral Sewer” and “Building Sewer” are synonymous.”
