(1) A permit is not required when your building drain (house connection) is being cleaned by a plumber utilizing a snake or “roto-rooter” type device. However, prior to utilizing these services, it is advisable to call the District so we can verify that the main sewer lateral is clear and free of debris and not the cause of the sewage backup.
NOTICE: Attention is called to Penal Law, Sec 1918 requiring all persons excavating in existing streets give 72 hours prior notice to the Gas Distributing Utility or Agency.
