o The majority of homeowners are unaware of what they are responsible for regarding the maintenance and repair of their water or sewer laterals. Many assume WSSC is responsible for repairing or maintaining the pipe that connects their home to WSSC’s pipes. The reality is, the homeowner is responsible for all repairs and maintenance of all the pipes on their property. WSSC is considering partnering with HomeServe to provide a residential water and sewer service line insurance protection plan.
o This year’s winner of the Commissioner’s Engineering Scholarship will be announced. The winning student will be present to receive the award.
