Henry County Road and Bridge Policies
Private Water Line Policy
Private water lines, defined as water lines run from the meter box to the residence, are not allowed on Henry County Rights-of-Way. These lines are generally not laid at an acceptable depth and create maintenance problems on both dirt and paved roads in the county road system. Any private water lines laid before the enactment of this policy are subject to relocation upon discovery by county forces. If these lines are knowingly damaged during county maintenance or construction operations, county forces will turn the water off at the meter but the owner of the line is responsible for the relocation and / or repair of the line meeting county utility standards. Any exception to this policy will be handled on a case by case basis and require a Henry County Right-of-Way Utility permit which must be submitted to the County Engineer and approved by the Henry County Commission.
Passed, Adopted, and Approved by the Henry County Commission, February 10, 2009.
