CITY OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO SEWER LATERAL COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATE
The Sewer Later Compliance Program has ended as of September 14, 2013, for Westborough Water District customers.
The City of South San Francisco recently approved an ordinance amending the City’s Municipal Code Regarding Water Quality Control and Sewer Lateral Construction, Maintenance and Inspection, which went into effect September 14, 2013. It clarifies that homes served by the sanitary sewer system owned and operated by the Westborough Water District are exempt from the City’s sewer lateral compliance certificate program. Without the exemption, this program would have required property owners in the District to have a plumber inspect/repair their sewer lateral prior to the sale of their home.
