Are the new cost estimates for sewer service close to 2017 estimate? ($100/metre)
Previous estimate was based on the City having an open trench for the water service installation and the sanitary service cost was materials only ($100/m) for property owner to replace the sewer at the same time. Under the proposed new policy, the costs would be different because the cost would include materials plus trenching, backfill, and restoration. Restoration costs will vary greatly between properties depending on the complexity of the landscaping and structures on the property.
