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 in 2012 conducted a presentation for design professionals on Sanitary Sewer System Capacity Certification. For more information, call 786-315-2800.

Sewer Extension Permits are 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.
