Permits & Licenses

No unauthorized person shall uncover, make any connections with or opening into, use, alter or disturb any public sewer or appurtenance thereof without first obtaining a written permit from all appropriate authorities.

The permit will be issued when the plans and specifications have been approved by the appropriate authorities.

Approval of plans and specifications for storm and/or sanitary sewers within the public right-of-way by the responsible agencies will serve as authority to construct those facilities. Permits for storm or sanitary service connections are required for all facilities or structures desiring use of a public sewer.

Obtaining the required plan approvals and service connection permits from the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works does not relieve a contractor from the responsibility to obtain local permits and/or utility company approvals.


Service Connection Permit forms may be obtained from the issuing municipal authority and/or the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works.
