Cities and towns control our water and sewer systems, and therefore we rely on them for very important services.
But cities and towns must take precaution to not damage your land while they furnish these services to us. This would include ensuring not to create a hazard or nuisance to your land, as well as ensuring not to damage your property while City workers repair nearby water lines, sewer lines, sidewalks or streets.
