Service Line Responsibility
Sioux Center utility customers are responsible for the water and sewer service lines on property they own. These service lines link you to the city water and sewer mains.
If a home or business' service lines break or need repair, the property owner is responsible for the fix.
Service line repairs can be expensive, running into thousands of dollars. Our desire is that property owners would not be surprised by their responsibility for service lines, especially in case of a break or other needed repair.
Property owners may purchase plans to cover service line repairs. If interested, you should visit with your homeowner's insurance agent to ask them about coverage. National companies specializing in emergency home repair coverage also offer competitive plans.
Gas & Electric Service Lines
In Sioux Center, property owners are not responsible for natural gas and electric service lines to their house. These are maintained by Sioux Center Municipal Utilities.
Water Service Lines
The Water Department maintains and repairs all water mains located in the street rights of way and water easements. The customer is responsible for the individual service that connects to the water main. This includes the curb stop (water shutoff) located on the property, the service pipe running from the main to the house and the water meter valve located in the house. The water meter is maintained by the utility.
