New water and sewer services for homeowners and other buildings are installed by the Water & Sewer Division. This ensures the work involving the water and sewer services leading up to, during and after the installation are controlled and have followed proper procedures.
Customers pay for the work once it is completed. No deposit is required for a new residential water or sewer services installation. A site servicing plan is required to be submitted at the time a building permit is applied for. City staff will review the site servicing plan to ensure it conforms to standards set forth in the City of Fredericton Municipal Specifications.
Often, within a year or two of the installation of a service lateral, the service trench may settle. If this is the case, the owner should take care of the problem.
Further information about the water & sewer services application process, along with how to schedule the work, can be found in the checklists in the left hand column.
