Thank you for helping us protect and preserve our local environment by replacing your privately-owned Sewer Lateral. West County Wastewater District (“West County Wastewater” or “WCW”) strongly encourages participation in this Public Incentive Program for Efficiency of Sewers (“PIPES”) Program to reduce the number of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (“SSOs”) that send raw sewage directly into nearby creeks or storm drains that eventually discharge this pollution into San Francisco Bay. Private Sewer Laterals are the responsibility of the Property Owner, per Title 8, Chapter 8.15 of the WCW Code, as well as WCW Ordinance 1-02-08.

The Board of Directors has allocated $400,000 to the Program for the 2021 Fiscal Year. On June 17th, 2020 the Board of Directors adopted Resolution No. 2020-28 amending the guidelines and requirements of the Program . The Program is offered to eligible owners of property located within the boundaries of WCW to help defray a portion of the cost of partially or completely replacing pre-approved defective Sewer Laterals.
