​Frequently Asked Questions

Where does my private plumbing start?

The property owner maintains a water pipe from the end of the meter box (including tailpiece) to building(s). The property owner is responsible for pipes and fixtures in the buildings and wastewater pipes until the edge of the street or street right-of-way (varies). Charlotte Water maintains a water meter up to and including the meter yoke assembly, meter box, and water and wastewater pipes under the public street.

Does my plumbing need to be replaced?

Just as pipes under the street age and have an end of service, so does plumbing in your home. Consider planning for the eventual replacement of plumbing that exceeds 50 years.
