General Information 

The goal of the Residential Sewer Line Repair and Replacement Program is to assist low to moderate-income homeowners with the cost of repairing or replacing decayed sewer lines on private residential property owned by the applicant as his/her homestead.  The improvements are necessary to reduce the inflow and infiltration of rainfall water into the City of Baytown’s sanitary sewer system.  The Program will provide funds to eligible participants to repair and/or replace the private sanitary sewer line from the City of Baytown’s main line to the building’s edge.  Any additional repairs, which are required to complete the work and properly tie-in to the house line, may be possible through this Program.  These funds are available through the Community Development Block Grant Program in the form of a five (5) year forgivable loan and are paid to the contractor upon completion and acceptance by the City of the project.
