Homeowner's Responsibility

HOMEOWNER'S RESPONSIBILITYA service connection is the pipe that carries water from the water main in the street to a residence or business. The Sudbury Water District owns the portion of the service connection from the main to the property line and/or curb stop.

The homeowner or business owner is responsible for the portion of the service connection on their property after the curb stop as well as the plumbing in their home (shut off valves, pressure reducing valves, etc.). The Sudbury Water District owns the water meter but the homeowner is responsible for any damage to the meter due to activity occurring in the area of the meter.
