Utilities Permits

Bellefield-Sewer-Project-banner.jpg

We provide water, sewer, and surface water utilities within Bellevue city limits. We also provide water and sewer utilities to Medina, Clyde Hill, Yarrow Point, and Hunts Point. (Those communities provide their own surface water utility.)

Contact us before you start any project that includes a new connection, reconnection, or service upgrade to one of these utilities. You will likely need a permit for your project. The purpose of the permit is to help ensure the work is up to current standards and to protect the public infrastructure from potential adverse impacts.

We're aiming for 100% paperless permitting in 2019!

We offer 24/7 online permitting services at MyBuildingPermit.com. You can apply online, check permit status and request inspections. All building, fire, utilities, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sign, right of way, wireless and clearing & grading permit applications must be submitted online at MyBuildingPermit.com. Paper applications and plans for these permit types are no longer accepted. Land use and shoreline permit applications will go online later this year.
