If you are working on a single-family or two-family dwelling site, a Sediment Control Permit is not required but Erosion Sediment Control measures should be incorporated prior to the start of construction. Please see Sediment Control Measures for Residential Construction Sties for more information.

For buildings with newly designed structures that require existing service connections to be adjusted.
Older/original homes were serviced by connections to City sewers that were appropriate for that time. Many new homes are being designed with basements in mind, which results in the need for deeper foundations. Service connections may need to be adjusted either by increasing their depth, or their location.
Before a building design is completed/approved, the designer/owner/builder should find out if the existing service connection(s) and location of connection(s) meets the newly designed structure.
