What is a residential water service?

Most residential water service lines are small diameter, underground pipes that carry water from a large diameter water main in the street to your private residence.  Concord Public Works is generally responsible for maintaining the section of your service between the water main and your private property.  The homeowner is generally responsible for maintaining the section of the service within the private property.
