The City of San Mateo is suspending the Private Sewer Lateral Cost Sharing Program as of Friday, December 22, 2017 at 5:00pm and will not be accepting any new applications until additional funding has been secured.
Property owners with applications on file prior to 5:00pm Friday, December 22, 2017 remain in the program to complete their lateral replacement, in compliance with the program requirements to be eligible for a cost sharing grant.
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.
