New Sewer Connections
Published on: 5/15/2013 12:00 AM

​Sewer Connection Permits are required for connecting to a sewer system within Nevada County Sanitation District No. 1.  Connection fees and sewer capacity availability vary by zone.  Sewer capacity required will vary depending upon the property's use and is determined by District staff.  A sewer permit application and site plan (11" x 17" or smaller) showing the sewer connection need to be submitted for review and approval before a sewer permit is issued.
