We know you’re working hard to keep yourselves healthy during COVID19 Shelter-in-Place. Help us keep our sewers healthy as well. Remember to never flush wipes, paper towels, or tissues because they clog our pump stations and the pipes! The District has 17 pump stations and it has become a major maintenance issue, resulting in significant cost increases (see photo to the right).

With the shortage of toilet paper, wipes are being used. Just remember:  Save your pipes!  No matter what the label says, don’t flush them – instead trash them.

If you have any questions, please contact us at (408) 477-7300.

In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and under guidance from local, state and federal authorities, we will be closing our physical office, beginning Tues, March 17, 2020 while continuing to provide limited service to our customers.

We will continue to provide 24/7 service for sewer backups and other sewer related emergencies. If you have a sewer backup please call County Communications at (408) 299-2507 and an inspector will respond within 2 hours.

Our office staff will continue to work from home as much as possible and provide service to our customers via phone and email. Please visit our Contact page to reach us via email or phone.

Over-the-counter permits and all construction related inspections are on hold until further notice.

The safety of our customers, employees and families remains our number one priority. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this uneasy time.
