Water Service Line Verification Program
What is the Water Service Verification Program?
The City of Berkley is required to provide the State with an updated material inventory on all water service lines (WSLs).
Per the State’s guidelines, properties have been randomly selected for physical verification of the WSL material. To complete WSL material verification, the materials are required to be verified at two locations: "In-Home" and "Outside" the property (see image below).

|2. Determining the “Outside” Service Line Material
Is There A Cost?
The City was awarded a Local Government Critical Infrastructure grant from the Oakland County Board of Commissioners. These grant funds will offset approximately 1/2 of the total cost to fulfill the State's requirements and no additional costs will be charged to you directly.
Why Was My Home Selected?
About 1 in 10 locations in the City of Berkley are required to have their water service line material verified, and yours was selected randomly. Per State guidance, the small number of randomly selected services is used to validate the City's information on the remaining service lines in the City.
