Project Description

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) proposes to update and codify the requirements for sewer availability certification and permitting for the construction, alteration, repair or relay, plugging, unplugging, and inspection of all house/site connections to the New York City (the City) sewer system. The purpose of the proposed action is to provide a standard permitting procedure for owners (any individual, firm, corporation, company, association, society, institution or any other legal entity that own the property) proposing to connect a City sewer, a private sewer, a private drain, or an approved outlet to serve an existing or a proposed development. The location of the proposed action includes all sites within New York City.
