Utility Services

Home construction or demolition can impact municipal services such as storm, sanitary and water.

During construction of a new house on a vacant lot or demolition of an older house to build a new home, there will be impacts (either temporary or permanent) on the connections to the municipal services, which include storm, sanitary and water. There are various scenarios that may occur, depending on the design of the new home, the age of the services, and the location of the services.
