Additional Costs

The property owner is responsible for installing the service lines from the Town's main line to the building that will receive the water and/or sewer service.  The property owner is also responsible for installing a septic tank for sewer and a water meter box with setter for water.  Usually these tasks are preformed by an independent contractor, licensed by the state to perform such tasks.  The property owner will hire the contractor of their choosing and make the arrangements to pay their fees.
