Home / Connect to the Sewer

Property owners within the District’s jurisdiction can connect to the sewer provided there is public sewer is available adjacent to owner’s property.

Step 1 Determining Sewer Availability

Determine if there is an existing public sewer adjacent to or near your property.  The District’s sewer system map is shown on the Geographical Information System (GIS) web page.  If sewer is not available, an extension of the District’s sewer at the owner’s cost would need to be reviewed by the District.

Step 2 Getting Costs for Materials and Installation

If there is an existing public sewer in along one of your property lines, you will need to contact your plumber for work inside the home and a District registered Drainlayer to make the connection from your foundation to the District’s main line.  The cost for installation is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Step 3 Obtaining a Permit

Once you have secured your contractors, the property owner or the owner’s contractor,  shall obtain the necessary permits from the District for the connection.  An application for a permit may be found in the KSD Sewer Connection Policy.  The requirements and specifications for the installation are contained in the KSD Service Connection Policy.

As part of the permitting policy, new connections will be assessed applicable fees including Impact Fees, Equity Buy in Fees and Permit Fees prior to obtaining a permit.  A list of connection fees is in contained in the Appendix of the Service Connection Policy.

Step 4.  Installing the House Service

The house service is your line from the dwelling to the District main.  Your contractor will install the line and arrange for an inspection by the District.  If correctly installed, the District representative will authorize the completion of the installation.

Step 5.  Establishing your Account

When the permit is obtained the District will establish an account for your property.  During the first year, the District will charge a prorated consumption of 6000 cubic feet per year.  Sewer bills are mailed quarterly to property owners.
