Triggers and Ordinances Required Before Permit Issuance
Private Sewer Lateral (PSL)
Sewer lines on private property must be inspected and replaced or repaired when the value of construction work exceeds $100,000 or costs more than $58,900. Effective June 1, 2011, you will be required to submit a Sewer Lateral Certificate (SLC) from the Public Works Department before receiving a building permit for your remodeling project(s). If you do not submit the SLC, the city will issue a plan check correction notice indicating you need to provide a copy of a Sewer Lateral Certificate before a building permit will be issued.
