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.
For additional information, please see the Program Application, the Cost Sharing Program overview, the Reimbursement Request form, and the FAQ's.
Please note that funding for the program is limited and available on a first come, first served basis for this fiscal year (July 2013 – June 2014).
