Laterals are pipes that connect a building’s plumbing to a sanitary sewer line. All too often these laterals crack or develop leaks.
Cracked laterals allow rainwater and groundwater to infiltrate the sewer system. Excess water in the system can overwhelm wastewater treatment facilities. This causes untreated or partially treated sewage to be released into San Francisco Bay.
Property owners, not the city, are responsible for maintaining these laterals. Beginning today the East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) will be making certain that property owners do just that.
