The City of San Mateo is accepting applications for the Private Sewer Lateral Cost Sharing Program. Application and bids must be approved prior to the replacement of your full sewer lateral. This program does not have a retroactive component.
The Private Sewer Lateral Cost Sharing Program provides grants from the City of San Mateo to property owners for 50% of the cost of a full sewer lateral replacement (from where it exits the structure to the main line connection), with a maximum grant of $5,000.
Spot repairs and partial repairs are not included in the cost sharing program. All types of properties (residential, commercial, multi-family, etc.) that are located in the City of San Mateo are eligible for the full lateral replacement cost sharing.
