I want my water line replaced, does the city do this?

The homeowner is responsible for the maintenance and replacement of their water service to the city's shut off. This connection is called the curb valve and is normally found in the tree lawn area of each building. It is recognizable by a black round metal disc with the word water across the top. The city will make repairs to the service on the "street side of this connection".
