Post: Sewer line underground prescriptive rights
Posted by Kandee Acuna on 5/14/14
We have this exact problem in Placerville, CA. Dad owns a 19
30's era home in an 1880's era neighborhood, so homes hooked
-up to sewer in different eras. City maintains the failing
sewer system for 5 homes is a private system because there a
re no sewer easements of record, the city can't find any rec
ords. The city is denying responsibility for replacing the
failing sewer system citing prescriptive rights of the 4 foo
t deep underground sewer system. This fight was lost in Pat
terson,CA with the city advancing the same defense, undergro
und prescriptive rights and the city won and the residents h
ad to repair the old sewer system. Very expensive.
