Another chance to fix your broken sewer line; for free

This house is not on fire! Water district smoke testing of new sewer lines is leaking out of the private property sewer connection under the lawn of this home. This leak needs to be fixed because raw sewage is leaking very near the adjacent room of this home.

Do you have a patch of grass that is always greener than the rest of your lawn in a street side yard of your home? Is there a section of your lawn that never dries up, its always wet and spongy? Is your toilet or bathtub constantly getting backed up whenever we have heavy rainfall? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you might have a broken or collapsed sanitary sewer line on your property between your house and your street’s wastewater collection pipe.

If you have a broken sanitary sewer line on your property, eventually the water district will discover it and require that you fix it, possibly at a cost to you of up to $2,000.

However, the Orange County Water Control and Improvement District #1 (OCWC&ID#1) is aware of the burden such costs can have on a homeowner and the district has been working with the City of Vidor to secure federal grant money that could help you pay for those repairs in their entirety.
