Is your plumbing problem your responsibility or the cities? We get that question asked a lot and it varies from city to city. Many people think that just because that you have a leaking pipe in the yard it is the cities responsibility to fix it this most often is not the case. For water services the city is only responsible up to the meter anything after the meter is the customers responsibility. So for example you can have a plumbing leak at the meter and still be your responsibility if the break is on the house side of the meter.
As far as drain clogs most people think it is the cities problem outside their home. This is not the case your homes sewer system should have a cleanout two to three feet from the home and then another clean out by the street depending on where the clog is. It could be on the city side but you as the homeowner are responsible all the way up to the city clean out if you have a cleanout out by the road and your whole house is backed up open the clean out by the road and if it is under pressure chances are it may be the cities responsibility.
