What does tout a l’egout mean in French real estate ads?

Tout a l’egout means that a property is connected to the main city or town drainage system for sewar and rain water.  This is in contrast to a property having a septic field to deal with sewage.

Important Note: even if a property advertisement says tout a l’egout it is very important to confirm this in writing from the local city hall because the owner can be mistaken or may not have checked.
