Sanitary Sewer Laterals (Watch)

HB 497 (Webb) requires a county water and sewer district to notify a homeowner within 30 days of the discovery of a leaking sanitary sewer lateral on the homeowner’s property. The notification does not require any action by the homeowner. The district is required to provide the information to the property appraiser, who must maintain a database of the notification.   The bill specifies circumstances under which the district is required to maintain a database of notifications to property owners.
