Construction with sewer connections
Federal regulations require certain permit applicants to obtain a Sewer Capacity Certification letter before being issued a building permit. Any construction or change of use that will cause an increase in wastewater discharge to a sewer will need a certification letter. This includes such things as changing a single-family house to a duplex, adding extra seats to a restaurant, adding a new doctor to a practice, or building a new house.
The Department on October 12, 2012, conducted a presentation for design professionals on Sanitary Sewer System Capacity Certification. For more information, call 786-315-2800.
NOTICE Effective Jan., 22, 2013 Sewer Extension Permits will be reviewed at Environmental Resources Management’s Overtown Transit Village (OTV) office located at: 701 NW 1st Court, 7th Floor. Any new applications, documents or plans submitted at the Permitting & Inspection Center will be forwarded to the OTV office via interoffice mail. For more information, call 305 372-6600.
