Water Line Maintenance--Owner's Responsibility

Posted on March 18, 2020 at 10:07 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q:  Are property owners responsible for their water lines on the property (from the alley in) or just from the meters?

A:  Per City of Laramie Municipal Code:  13.08.070 - Maintenance—Owner's responsibility.  The owner of any property connecting to the water utility shall be responsible for the maintenance of the water service line from the curb stop to the structure being served and shall keep this line in good condition at his expense. He shall, at his expense, at all times keep all pipes, fixtures and appliances on his property tight and in good working order so as to prevent waste of water.
