Sewer permits are required for all sewer connections and repairs. The Bethlehem Sewer District will need to perform an inspection on sewer lines that are connected to the sewer system. You can apply for a sewer permit at the Department of Public Works Office in Room 203 at Town Hall.
Any contractor or other party performing work in connection with the construction of a sewer connection must be approved by the town and have on file with the town an owner’s and contractor’s protective liability insurance policy, in the name of the Town of Bethlehem and/or the Town of Bethlehem Sewer District, in the following amounts:
Bodily Injury - $2,000,000 each accident
Property damage - $500,000
A $5,000 permit bond indemnifying the Town of Bethlehem and/or the Town of Bethlehem Sewer District
No permits will be issued until the insurance and bond requirements are met.
