Louisiana Tech University
Utility Management


Utilities considering implementing a private lateral program now have a practical guide that discusses the legal options and financial considerations, especially as they relate to private property issues. A useful table of funding options provides a range of possible alternatives for inspection, testing, repairs, rebates and hardship cases. This useful guide includes case studies of various scenarios. Sample documents include repair agreements, letters to homeowners, doorhangers and permits. Published by WERF. 24 pages. Soft cover report and online PDF. (2009)
