Please click here to visit Clearmaps and determine whether your property is connected or able to connect to a sanitation district. By clicking the blue "I want to...." button, you can search for your property by Pin number, parcel name, account number/r-number, or owner name. Yellow lines indicate sanitary sewer lines.
If you are able to connect to a sanitation district, you will not need an Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (O.W.T.S.) permit. Please discard this form and contact the appropriate sanitation district to confirm that this property is able to be connected. Please retain this correspondence as that you may need this confirmation for later building endeavors.
