ORDINANCE NO. 130, AMENDING PROPERTY LINE CLEANOUT - SUMMARY
At the regular Board meeting held March 1, 2023, the Cupertino Sanitary District Board approved Ordinance No. 130. This ordinance amends the Cupertino Sanitary District Operations code pertaining to requirements for providing and maintaining cleanouts and sewer laterals.
Existing section 4101 "Cleanouts" of the Cupertino Sanitary District Operations Code is deleted and replaced by a new section 4101 which requires cleanouts in the following situations:
- All new developments
- Existing property fronting a public street and requiring a building permit when any new plumbing fixtures are added or the total cost of improvements exceed $50,000 or the upper lateral (from the building to the property line) is being replaced or repaired.
- Any property where a sewer blockage results from a defect in the existing cleanout
- Any property in which a District inspection shows "defect 4" pursuant to the National Association of Sewer Service Companies Pipe Assessment Certification Program or the cleanout's size is less than 4 inches in diameter.
Excepted from the foregoing requirements are installations of cleanouts at the option of the property owner as described.
Cleanouts must be installed by the property owner at no cost to the district. When cleanouts are connected to the existing lower lateral (from street right-of-way to the sewer main) the district will reimburse the owner at the rate of $400 per foot for any portion of the lateral more than 3 feet from the cleanouts if there is no sidewalk and curb and gutter replacement. If there is a sidewalk and curb and gutter replacement the rate is $500 per foot.
