It’s no secret that our underground piping system is aging but did you know that the homeowner is responsible for the sewer laterals that run from the home to the street? In today’s video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll show how sewer laterals are replaced. Host Stuart Keith meets with Steve Breitlow from Plumbers Local 75 to get an overview and Master Plumber Tom Zoulek from Mid City Corporation explains the process. Also, Becky Specht from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) talks about their Pipecheck Program that helps offset some of the costs for homeowners replacing their sewer laterals.
