As is the case every year, Utah state law requires that the Ash Creek Special Service District (District) notify homeowners of public vs. private ownership of sewer lines. All sewer laterals were initially installed by property owners within the District’s boundaries. The term “sewer lateral” is defined as follows: That portion of any sewer and all parts thereof beginning at the plumbing outlet of any building or facility and running to the District’s Main Sewer, including the connection to the District Main Sewer, as shown in the figure below.

Sewer laterals are not part of the District’s system. The maintenance, repair, and replacement of any sewer lateral is the sole responsibility of the property owner. The District has no responsibility for any sewer lateral. If you experience a blockage in your sewer lateral please contact a licensed plumber to help you repair the problem.
