A service lateral is a private facility.  The property owner shall be responsible for constructing, repairing, and maintaining the entire sewer lateral between the building and the sanitary sewer main (including the lateral and building sewers, and the tap, saddle, or wye connection fitting at the sanitary sewer main).  The city shall not be financially responsible for any sewer lateral construction, operation, maintenance, repair, abandonment, or other cost whatsoever, except where the city itself or its contractor reconstructs or realigns the sanitary sewer main, thereby necessitating the reconnection of sewer laterals to the sanitary sewer main.
