If you are interested in installing a sewer line for your home, you can check and keep this list of requirements during the installation process.

1. Obtain a Plumbing Permit from Building Inspection.


2. Turn to Technical Resources to Obtain a Connection Permit if the Connection is New.

Each cleanout shall be extended to grade. Additional cleanouts should be installed at intervals of up to 100 feet in straight runs and for every change in aggregate of direction exceeding 135 degrees.
