Under this program, the contracted City contractor may replace/repair parts with EPA WaterSense approved products when possible, and are not limited to:
I, the participant, hereby request to participate in the City of Sacramento’s Leak-Free Sacramento Repair Program. I understand and agree to the following conditions of participation:
I understand that, as a participant, I will be required to work with a contracted City contractor through the City of Sacramento’s Leak-Free Program.
I understand that I will not receive monetary reimbursement for this project; funding for my project will be transferred directly to the City contractor.
I understand that this is a limited, first-come, first served program, and that I am eligible for one contractor site visit and they are only given for projects which have applications that are approved; the City can deny any application that does not meet program requirements.
I understand that if I am asked for supplemental documents (proof of home ownership) to my application, I must supply them within two weeks from the time I am asked for them from program staff. If I fail to return them within this time frame, my application will be withdrawn and I must wait one month before re-applying.
I understand the improvements to my plumbing system may not result in lower water bills.
I understand that Plumbing assistance will not be rendered if such assistance will result in hazardous environmental conditions or allow an existing hazardous environmental condition to continue. If a hazardous environmental condition is found, such as mold, asbestos, lead it must be abated per the applicable regulations.
I understand that my home must be habitable and safe for occupation to be eligible for services. Examples of circumstances that would make a home not eligible include areas open to the outside, lack of complete roofing, floors that are too unstable for toilets to be seated properly or a home settled from its original support structure in a way that makes work on it unsafe. If the contracted City contractor notes concern regarding structural stability or general safety of the home, it will be assessed by the Leak-Free Program staff and referred to City of Sacramento Code Compliance as needed.
