A Sewer Connection concerns residents who are not currently connected to the City sewer and are currently using a septic tank. To connect to City sewer, follow these parameters:
Residents interested in connecting to City sewer are required to obtain a Sewer Connection Permit.
In addition to obtaining a sewer connection permit residents must also hire a licensed contractor to make the connection according to City standards and obtain building and encroachment permits.
Existing septic tanks must be abandoned. This can be done by punching holes in the bottom and then filling the tank with earth.
A Building Permit must be obtained prior to connecting the new connection to the house. The Building Permit may be obtained at the Building Inspection counter at: Ceres City Hall Annex 2220 Magnolia Street Ceres, CA 95307
Connections outside the City Limits require City Council approval and agreement to Annex.
Fees increase on July 1 of every year.
Please call the Engineering Division at 209-538-5792. They will tell you the availability of sewer at your residence and the associated connection costs. Encroachment and building permits are required.
