If your private sewer service line is in need of replacement, now would be a good time to have it done prior to 2A work being completed this year.

Later this summer, the City of Cañon City will be reconstructing the streets indicated above. It is anticipated that the project will entail complete reconstruction of the roadway along with installation of curb and gutter, sidewalks, and other improvements.
The sewer service pipe extending from the sewer main into your structure is considered a private utility and is the property owner’s responsibility to maintain or replace as necessary. Many of the private sewer service lines were installed over 30 years ago. If your private sewer service line is in need of replacement, now would be a good time to have it done. The cost of replacing your service line after the new pavement and curb are installed will be significantly higher due to the need to cut and replace the new asphalt surface and curb that will be covering your service line.
If your sewer service is sluggish, blocked up, or troublesome on an ongoing basis, you may wish to have some investigation done to determine the overall condition of your private service line. It may be that replacement now would be the most cost-effective long-term solution.

Your cooperation and patience during our construction are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration.
