A whole new line all the way from the back yard to the center of the street out front ... 100 feet or so ... was "guesstimated" to cost something ridiculous ... $10,000 +.
I live in the City of San Angelo and they don't have any requirement like that. However, the city sewer line on the side street of my property is closer to my new shop site and slightly downhill from it. Already talked to a plumber and he said it will be easy to tie in to the closer line and the city will have no problem with that. My plumber was estimating $700 or so.
