Oakland Sewer Lateral

Author profile image

Oakland Sewer Lateral Point-of-Sale Requirements: The East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) is now requiring sewer lateral inspections prior to homes being sold in Oakland, Emeryville and Piedmont. The inspections also are required for certain remodeling projects and when a property owner changes the size of their water meter.

The EBMUD point-of-sale requirement is in response to a court order from the the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA is requiring EBMUD repair damaged sanitary sewer pipes to prevent untreated waste from being released into the San Francisco Bay. EBMUD is in turn passing the responsibility to individual property owners who will have to obtain a certificate from EBMUD showing their sewer laterals are not damaged and are connected properly.

Please visit the EBMUD Website to determine if a property is subject to the sewer lateral inspection requirements and how to obtain a compliance certificate by clicking here.
