Standards & Specifications

SASD’s standards provide minimum requirements for planning, design, and construction of sewer facilities that are, or will be, dedicated to SASD. These standards are meant to ensure that SASD’s sewer system is properly engineered to operate in a cost-effective manner while protecting the safety and general welfare of the public and SASD personnel. The Standards and Specifications were approved by SASD’s Board of Directors on July 24, 2013.
