Side Sewer As-built Inspection Procedure

Outlined below is the general procedure for having a side sewer inspected and approved by the City of Bellevue Utilities Department. A more thorough discussion of side sewer standards and requirements can be found in chapter S6 of the Utilities Engineering Standards Handbook. Please note that it is the responsibility of the side sewer permit applicant to prepare a neat and accurate side sewer as-built drawing before the side sewer inspection.

If an as-built drawing has been prepared, the inspector will first review the drawing for compliance with the as-built drawing checklist. Sloppy, dirty, incomplete and/or inaccurate drawings will be rejected. The inspection may proceed; however, the permit cannot be signed off during this inspection. Another inspection will be required. Hourly inspection charges will apply to this and every subsequent inspection including any follow-up required to obtain the as-built drawing.
