Sanitary Sewer Lateral Grant Program Policy and Procedures

The city adopted an administrative rule (Rule No. 12.01.080-09-01) regarding the responsibilities, practices, and procedures relating to the sanitary sewer waste water collection system in 2016. This rule helps clarify the responsibilities of the city in relationship to Clean Water Services, the county sewer district. The rule also clarifies the responsibilities of private property owners connected to the city public sewer system, including ownership of private sanitary sewer laterals. The city and Clean Water Services recognize that structurally deficient private sanitary sewer laterals may cause damage to city owned streets, including sink holes, cracked pavement and potholes. Failing private sewer laterals may also contribute to groundwater inflow and infiltration problems which impact the capacity of the city’s sanitary sewer wastewater collection system and Clean Water Services wastewater treatment plant systems.

The proposed administrative rules provide policy and procedures for a Sanitary Sewer Lateral Grant Program to provide financial incentives toward timely repair or replacement and to help homeowners with the cost of making repairs beneath city owned streets and public right of way. The Sanitary Sewer Lateral Grant Program utilizes sewer funds to reimburse homeowners for a portion of the cost associated with repair or replacement of sewer laterals. Assistance is only available for repair or replacement of sewer laterals with structural damage beneath city streets.  This grant program, if adopted, is only available to property owners and customers with the City of Tigard service boundary.

Comment Period: The comment period closes on April 27, 2017.
