How much will these ‘laterals’ cost me?

The cost varies depending on the site condition e.g., on how far the lines need to run and any obstacles or surface improvements.  For planning and budgeting purposes individual homeowners’ cost should range from $2,500 to $5,000. There are also City of Del Mar permit fees yet to be determined.
