Standards & Specifications

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.



How do I obtain a permit for installing or replacing sewer pipes?

For answers to all your sewer permit questions, your first call should be to our Permit Services Unit at (916) 876-6100.

To get a building permit and a sewer impact (connection) permit for a new or existing business or residence, some key information is required. For residential permits, you need the property address, parcel number, and your payment. For commercial permits, you need the property address, parcel number, site improvement plans, and your payment.
