New Single Family Dwelling

A plan submittal is usually not necessary when applying for a permit for the connection of a new single family dwelling with less than 100 feet of new lateral sewer line to be installed, unless requested by USD's Engineer.

Upon payment of all fees and evidence of a city building permit, a sewer permit may be issued to the party contracted to do the underground construction.

After obtaining a permit, call 24 hours before beginning sewer construction to schedule an inspection.
