Verification of Sanitary Sewer Service Depth

It shall be the building contractor’s responsibility to verify the exact depth of the service available to the property on which he is constructing a building.  Where services have been extended from the main to the property line as part of the main installation project, wooden stakes have been placed to identify the plan view location of the end of the service stud.  Upon securing a particular property, the builder should verify the location of this stake and should provide whatever protection is necessary for its preservation.  It is recommended that the contractor excavate to the end of the service and determine the exact elevation of the invert prior to establishing the floor elevations for the related building.  The District assumes no responsibility for the failure of a builder to be able to serve any given building by gravity flow to the District system.
