Original message: When I moved into my first fixer upper with my husband, we found out our sewer line was in place when our home was constructed before 1950, and was made out of orangeberg tarpaper. This disintegrates within 10-20 years and needs to be replaced by PVC pipe. We were out there digging through frozen soil by hand. We couldn't afford the cost of $5,000 per 50 feet. The Real Estate Agent called me crazy and said we had a leach field, yet the home was charged city water and sewer for all those years. Now, twenty years later, the city is replacing most of them. But even though we drink well water from 80 feet below the ground, the city water was contaminated with e-coli last month. A full explanation was promised by authorities. I am glad you have this avenue of openness.
