Lateral Program

The Frankfort Sewer Department has a lateral program that was created to correct structural problems in laterals that are located within right-of-ways or public easements. 

Laterals on Private Property

Structural problems in laterals located on private property are the sole responsibility of the property owner. In accordance with Sewer Department policy, maintenance of flow within laterals, whether on private property or within public right-of-way, is the responsibility of the homeowner. 

Should you, or your plumber, believe that there is a structural problem within your lateral, please call the Sewer Department at 502-875-2448 to schedule a lateral investigation.
