It places the sewer line at the lowest point between the houses that are across the street from each other. Placing the sewer line under the sidewalk would require a longer and possibly shallower run from the house that is located furthest from the sewer line. The home furthest from the sewer line would need conservation easements are foundation built a couple of feet higher to get the minimum slope for the sewer line run. Also, some localities don't have the right-of-way (permission) to build under the sidewalks. The sidewalk belongs to the homeowner and is responsible for maintenance and repairs - depends upon the local city ordinances (some cities in NYS are that way). I'm sure there are other engineering reasons.
