Water service repair is the responsibility of the homeowner. The homeowner’s responsibility is from the home up to the curb stop. The New Ulm Public Utilities’ responsibility is from the curb stop to the City water main.
The property owner shall maintain accessibility and proper grade of the curb stop riser box. Proper grade is defined as flush with finished grade to no more than 4 inches below finished grade. If grade is adjusted by New Ulm Public Utilities, the property owner could be billed for adjustment to grade, correction to operable vertical position, and/or relocation in conformance with local and state requirements.
