Street Restoration

When streets and sidewalks are removed or damaged during water service installation or when shutting off existing water service, the water service customer is responsible for the restoration (pdf).

The full cost of street right-of-way restoration may include:

  • Paving
  • Curb and gutter
  • Sidewalks
  • Wheelchair ramps

Specific restoration requirements are determined by Street and Sidewalk Right of Way Opening and Restoration Rule.
