Wastewater Services has two programs to save you money: Call Us First and the House Sewer Line Repair Cost Share Program (CSP).

A Wastewater Services truck is branded with the Call Us First program and equipped with many tools.

Call Us First Program

If you’re having sewer issues in your home, call us before you call a plumber! We will respond to your home or business the same day to see if we can resolve the problem.

Many homes have lower lateral clean-outs that grant us access to the public portion of your sewer pipes. We can flush or inspect the lower lateral line, which may fix your issue and save you money. If that doesn’t solve the problem, you may still have to call a plumber to do a thorough inspection of your private sewer lines.

Call Modesto’s Wastewater Services first at 209-577-6200 to see if we can fix your sewage problems for free.

Cost Share Program (CSP)

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of the house sewer line that delivers sewage from the residence to the sewer main in the street. The House Sewer Line Repair Cost-Share Program (CSP) provides financial assistance to property owners for the replacement of their house sewer line within the public right-of-way.

The City Council recognized that the cost of repairing the house sewer line can be significant for property owners. The House Sewer Line Repair Cost-Share Program (CSP) was established to ensure timely repair and maintenance of house sewer lines and to prevent potential health hazards.

For more information, please contact the program coordinator at 209-342-4712.

The portion of a private sewer between the sidewalk and street is eligible for Cost Share Program
