What is a utility easement?

A Utility Easement indicates the presence of an underground utility pipe (drainage, sanitary sewer and/or water main) running through part of the property. The easement is made so the appropriate party can enter the land should service or work on the pipe or other accessory structure (manhole, inlet) ever be necessary. The easement precludes the erection of sheds, decks, patios or other structures.
