Up to $2,000 in grant funds are available to City of Vidor homeowners who qualify under HUD low to moderate income household requirements, live in the City of Vidor and have broken private property sewer line connections. Apply today at the Water District office.

Water District seeks qualified property owners for free private property sewer line replacements.

If you live inside of the city limit of the City of Vidor and your total household income might be considered somewhat less than comfortable and you suspect you might have a broken sewer connection line between your house and the sewer main on your street, you might qualify for a replacement sewer line costing as much as $2,000, at no cost to you!

That is correct! A FREE sewer line replacement for qualified City of Vidor homeowners might be in your future.

“Late last year, the City of Vidor was gracious enough to apply for and receive a Texas Community Development Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to replace about 110 broken private property sewer line connections between residential houses and the Orange County Water Control and Improvement District #1 sanitary sewer main that they are connected to,” said Norman Blackman, General Manager of the OCWC&ID#1. “The City was gracious in the fact that they were willing to apply for the funding to help low to moderate income households offset the high cost to fix their broken sewer lines and also because we, as a water district, cannot apply for HUD funds ourselves, as only municipalities can do that.”

Since last December, the water district has arranged to have some 40 to 50 private property sewer lines repaired in the City of Vidor at no cost to the homeowner. The Water District is currently searching for another sixty to seventy HUD qualified homeowners who have broken sewer line connections on their private property to apply for these grants worth up to $2,000 so that the water district can arrange to fix those broken lines for free.
