As of Jan. 31, 2023, emergency sewer repair permits no longer require an application review. Sewer contractors can now apply for and instantly receive a permit in one online transaction.
This change will simplify and expedite the permit process for customers faced with emergency sewer repairs, allowing contractors to restore service as soon as possible. Please note, sewer construction standards will still be enforced by the Pierce County sewer inspectors.
To get started, go to PierceCountyWa.gov/Permit, select Apply Online, then Create an Application Online, and enter the tax parcel number or site address. Click the Emergency Sewer Repair Permit on the Permit Type Selection screen to proceed and enter your information.
