Plumbing/Sewer - What is the difference between a Plumbing permit and a Sanitary Sewer permit?

A plumbing permit is considered a type of building permit and can be applied for using the general building permit application. The scope of work for this type of permit would be limited to work performed on interior plumbing. 

A Sanitary Sewer permit application is separate from the general building permit application and applies to work performed between the principal building and the sewer main. This includes, but may not be limited to, repairs to the sewer lateral as well as disconnection, reconnection, or new connection to the sewer main.

Costs for Sanitary Sewer permits will vary depending on the scope of work. Please refer to the most recent Easttown Township Fee Schedule for more details.
