Until the completion of Sewer Districts 1, 2, and 3 in 1999, 2002, and 2008, respectively, most residential areas of the City did not have access to the municipal sewer system. The City is working through a long-range master plan to provide sewer services to all remaining properties within the City.

Sewer Master Plan Area 1, constructed as Assessment District 98-1, was completed in 1999. Sewer Master Plan Area 2, constructed as Assessment District 02-1 was completed in Summer 2005. Sewer Master Plan Areas 3A & 3B, constructed as Assessment District 04-1 were completed in June 2008. 
A map of the Master Plan Areas is here.

The Foothill Trunk Sewer is maintained by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District. Sewer mains in Areas 1, 2 and 3 are maintained by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works under contract with the City.

The City's long-term goal is to expand and improve the Citywide wastewater collection and transmission system for the future Sewer Project Areas 4, 5 and 6. For a detailed map of Sewer Project Areas #5, #6E, and #6J please

The City maintains an authorized list of sewer/plumbing contractors. When selecting a contractor for sewer/plumbing connections or services, homeowners are encouraged to request verification of liability and workers' compensation insurance and a City Business License from the selected contractor. 

For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 818-790-8882.

Sewer Connection Subsidies (gravity sewers only)

The City spends part of its Community Development Block Grant allocation to assist low and moderate income households to connect to the sewer. This grant offers up to $12,000 in grants per household for eligible applicants for a sewer connection. Eligible work under the grant is limited to plumbing retrofit and hardscape construction costs associated with the connection of single-family residences to newly constructed sewer lines. 

Homeowners interested in the CDBG sewer connection grant should contact Art Casañas of LDM Associates, the City's contractor, at (909) 476-9696 ext. 221. The grant application is available here.
