SacSewer’s standards provide minimum requirements for planning, design, and construction of sewer facilities that are, or will be, dedicated to SacSewer. These standards are meant to ensure that SacSewer’s sewer system is properly engineered to operate in a cost-effective manner while protecting the safety and general welfare of the public and SacSewer personnel. The Standards and Specifications were approved by SacSewer’s Board of Directors on March 13, 2019.
