  1. The property owner or his agent completes the Application for Connection Permit Form.
  2. The District prepares the Connection Permit package
  3. The applicant or his agent pays the appropriate fee and picks up the permit

Permitting Locations


If the connection is to a sewer within the corporate limits of Champaign, Urbana or Savoy, the applicant then takes the permit to the respective municipality for their processing. Each community is required to inspect the actual installation work and return a completed inspection form to the District. If the connection is to a District interceptor sewer, the District will observe and inspect the connection as well.
