What is the Private Service Lateral Program (PSLP)?
The Private Service Lateral Program (PSLP) / Service Lateral Program (SLP) is a three step approach to inspect, test, and repair defective and substandard sewer service lines from homes to the street. The WWTA’s sewage system is comprised of two parts; the public portion maintained by the WWTA, and the private portion historically maintained by the property owner. Generally speaking, for every mile of public sewer line, there is an equal corresponding mile of private sewer lateral lines. The “private” sewer lateral lines are owned by the home or business owner. Private owners are responsible for installing, maintaining and repairing their own lateral, and most do not even know they have a problem and may not know until the sewage backs up into their home or business.Private Service Lateral Program page.
