Lateral Sewer line
Hello, I have searched all over the web trying to find out about lateral sewer lines. Here's my situation, there is a sinkhole on the other side of my street and the sewer department says it is a break in my lateral line, 2 ft from the Y. I have been trying to find diagrams of sewer and lateral lines just so I have an idea of what 2ft from the Y actually means. I'm also curious, is it true that the break in the line would be very close to the sinkhole? I'm really hoping I am not going to have to have my yard dug up so if I have an idea of where a Y would be in comparison to the lateral I would probably have an idea if this issue will remain in the street. I would greatly appreciate any info on this matter, as a homeowner that's responsible for the repair I'm also curious of how much something like this will cost.
