Sewer Permits

All buildings, both residential and commercial, located within the Delta Diablo (District) service area are required to hook up to the public sewer, provided that one is available within 300 feet of the plumbing system of the premises.  Prior to hooking up a sewer or premises, approval and a permit must be obtained from the District.  You can apply for a sewer permit online at
