(a) It shall be unlawful for any person other than a plumber or homeowner licensed by the County to make a connection between any sewer service lateral and any building sewer upon or within private property in a Sanitation District; and before any such licensed plumber or homeowner may make any such connection between a sewer service lateral and a building sewer within such Sanitation District he shall obtain a Wastewater Discharge permit authorizing the connection to be made. Any such connection must be made to the sewer prior to the installation of any plumbing fixtures discharging into the building sewer.
A plumber or homeowner desiring a permit to make a connection to a sewer service lateral or trunk line sewer shall file with the Department an application in writing on a form furnished and specified by said Department. The application shall include the name of the plumber or homeowner, the name of the owner of the premises on which the work is to be performed, the legal description of the property on which the work is to be performed, or in lieu of such legal description the official street and number of the premises; or, if there be no official street number, a street number recognized by the Department, a sketch or diagram showing the location of the premises. The applicant shall attach to the application a plat showing the location of existing trunk lines and laterals adjacent to the property upon which the work is to be done, and showing the place where it is desired to connect to the sewer service lateral or trunk line sewer.
Before a Wastewater Discharge permit shall be issued, all applicable fees, rates and charges imposed by the Sanitation District shall be paid to said Department, except as specified in subsection (b) below. No Wastewater Discharge permit shall be issued unless the application is first approved by said Department.
(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a) above, the payment of a Capital Facility Capacity Fee (as defined in Section 2.2 of Article 2 of Part I of Section IV of the San Diego County Uniform Sewer Ordinance, Ordinance No. 9103 N.S.) in connection with residential tracts and commercial building permits may be deferred and paid prior to or at the time of scheduling a final building inspection, if the applicant executes an agreement with the County for a fee deferral.
