Sanitary Sewer Lateral Program
Public Works also oversees the City's Sanitary Sewer Lateral Repair / Insurance Program. This program is funded by a $28 fee that was approved by the voters of the City of Des Peres. View the program's steps and procedures.

Additional Notes
  • The contractor provides the City with a certificate of insurance and performance bond for this work. The company is licensed and has significant experience in doing this type of sewer repairs. 
  • Substantially solid sewer lines that merely have a few roots in them will not be replaced. Cabling of such lines is the homeowner’s responsibility. 
  • Should the scope of the project involve more than $5,000 in total charges, the owner will be given the choice of either directly paying the contractor for more work, or having the project stopped.
