You don’t need permission for a sewer line repair

I got home last week only to not be able to get into my ‌driveway, and there were people there from the sewage authority doing a sewer line repair.

They had the entire road torn up from one end to the other.

They were trying to find where the sewer line was broken and they had pinpointed it right in front of our house! Half my garden was already missing and I had a 3 foot trench going from one end of my driveway to the other, and I asked them how they expected me to get into my house and the supervisor chuckled. He told me he would park across the street. He threw a board down across the trench and said I should go across the board and into my house. I couldn’t believe that they were doing a sewer line repair and not telling us about it. When my fiance came home, he was furious. He wanted to believe what right they had to dig up our property and our driveway, without previous notice?. They told him that with a sewer line repair, they did not need our permission. It’s the same thing that happened when they put sewer pipes in front of our house. We had no choice but to pay the $1500 for them to install the sewer pipe and we had to pay to have our own yard and driveway repaired when they were done. I have actually no respect for the sewage authority and for how they do sewer line repair and we have to scrub up the mess.
