What is my obligation to disclose old sewage pipes?

Question Details: I'm selling a home that is very old. I live next to a large university whose land our sewage pipes go through. They are 100 year old clay pipes and have broken twice on their property. It was cleaned up and repaired but from the area of the repairs to the house, it's still the original pipe. While the university hasn't taken any official or legal action against us, they have threatened us with liens on our property if our pipe bursts on their property again. Our neighbors and I were planning on moving the pipe off of their property before I decided to sell. There is nothing wrong with the pipes right now other than there are a hundred years old. Is this something I have to fix or does this even need to be disclosed? What is my liability if I sell this house and the pipe burst?
