In order to obtain a demolition permit from the cities of Fremont, Newark or Union City, you will be required to obtain a Demolition/Sewer Capping Permit from Union Sanitary District. A permit application must be submitted.
Applicants will be asked to provide the following information at the time the permit is issued:
- Type of structure being demolished
- Address of structure
- Owner information
- Proposed new construction
- Will the sewer lateral be used or abandoned?
- Date of capping inspection
Our Construction Inspector will verify that the lateral is properly capped. The lateral can be temporarily capped or permanently abandoned. If you choose to reuse your existing lateral, you will be required to televise that lateral before re-connecting. USD requires capping so that debris will not get into our sewer lines.
The total permit/inspection fee will be $200, plus a $500 refundable deposit. The customer's contractor will be required to do the capping. Customers will receive their deposit refund upon final inspection and acceptance of the sewer capping.
Please contact us at (510) 477-7500 regarding any demolition/sewer capping permit questions.
