What is the homeowner's responsibility on a sewer overflow/blockage?
The Town of Billerica owns everything in the street. There is a stub on your property line that the homeowner owns from there into their house. The Town of Billerica will clear the street end and, if necessary, the homeowner will call a rooter service if the problem is in their line.
