Hi, Marty, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service
I am sorry to hear of all the trouble your brother is facing,
"Is BTC responsible for any of the repair cost?"
BTC would not be responsible for any repair costs unless BTC caused damage to the sewer line that needs repairs,
You also asked,
"Can BTC bury their cables over the churches sewer line? "
When the church, or any previous owner granted an easement to the property presently occupied by BTC for installation of cables, they pretty much lost the use of the underground area where the easement was granted. The document granting the easement should specify exactly where the cables would be installed and a survey map of that area should be recorded with the document which granted the easement. Therefore, when the repairmen come, they will need a copy of the easement survey and the survey map so that they will be able to dig exactly where the church's sewer lines are without disturbing or damaging BTC's cables,
