Your Water Service Pipe
Your water service extends from its connection to the main in the street up to and including your meter. Yours is the only property being serviced by that line. As the property owner, you are responsible for maintaining your water service in good working order at your expense. Even though it is your service, the city must perform any required work in order to maintain records not only for you, but also for any future owners. When a service pipe leaks, it is essential that it be fixed properly. The results of water service pipe leaks can be destructive as well as pose health risks.
