The side sewer permit application is available on this website (sewer permit forms). Please complete the application and submit it to our office prior to paying any permit or connection fees. The District has up to 3 working days to review your application. Your contractor must be current on their registration in order for the permit to be approved. Once approved, the permit/connection fees may be paid. The District requires at least a 24-hour notice to schedule an inspection.

It actually costs less to send all our customers a statement than it costs to have staff remove them for certain accounts. Also, some customers have commented that they appreciate receiving the statement because it reminds them to deduct the amount from their check register.
Yes. The District requires developers to pay connection fees for every house they plan to connect to the sewer system. In fact, the District has already set aside $15 million dollars in developer fees for the cost of constructing the new treatment plant (with $22 million expected over the next decade).
The main reason was the fact that the District had secured $77 million dollars in low-interest loans from the State. This was a huge achievement. So, even though the bid to construct came in higher than anticipated, if the District did not move forward to construct the plant, the funding would have been lost. It is unlikely the District would have an opportunity for such a large amount of state funding in the future (as there are so many other agencies that apply). Without low-interest loans, the debt for the plant would be much greater, which in turn means higher rates for our customers.
