Waste water pipes will most likly be PVC or in older areas clay pipe. Also the water lines (unless rather old) will probbably be a black plastic from the meter into the house. My plumbing was redone about 16 years ago and that is the way it was done.

Well there are crappy grounds, and then there are crappy grounds
(couldn't resist)! But seriously, most household waste water pipes
these days are PVC. Not sure what they are under the streets, but it's
not clear that they'd be metallic. Cold water supply pipes are much
more likely to connect to a ground-worthy buried metal pipe.
