Forgiveness of Sewer Charges / Leak Adjustment

The Village of Stratford and Stratford Water & Electric Department are responsible for maintenance and operation of water and waste water treatment and distribution systems.  Each property owner is responsible for installation, maintenance and repairs of water piping from the property line / curb stop to the main building, waste water piping from the connection to the service lateral to the main building, and all plumbing inside the building.  

Forgiveness of sewer charges (leak adjustment) is intended to address high sewer usage charges when the water discharged does not reach the waste water facility for treatment.  Please refer to the policy before submitting a request for forgiveness of sewer charges.
