What is a water service?

Water service is the in-ground pipe that distributes water to each residence in the Town. There are two sections to each water service, the Town-owned infrastructure which is built, owned and maintained by the Town of Cochrane, and the Property owner’s infrastructure, which is built by the home builder, owned and maintained by the property owner. These two sections are separated by the property line, and ‘curb stop’ water valve located at the property line between the Town & property owner.
