The goal of MMSD's Private Property Program is to reduce the risk of basement backups by cutting down on the massive amount of excess water that leaks into privately-owned sanitary sewers and from older homes that have a foundation drain connected directly to sanitary sewers. MMSD is providing funding to the 28 communities that it serves to get the work done and approving work plans submitted by the communities.

It is up to each city and village to decide whether it will tackle leaky laterals, foundation drains connected to the sanitary sewer system or both. Local leaders of each community will also decide if there will be a cost-share for the home or business owner in the targeted area.
