Information on Scheduling an Inspection

To comply with the East Bay Regional Private Sewer Lateral Program, a verification test is required to demonstrate that the lateral is free of leaks (the upper lateral only for properties in Alameda and Albany and the entire lateral, upper and lower, in all other regions). It is the responsibility of the property owner (or their agent) to schedule an inspection with EBMUD to witness a verification test on the property's private sewer lateral(s) .

EBMUD's online scheduling tool allows you to view all available inspection windows. You may select the available inspection window that will best serve you. Please be ready at the start of the window. EBMUD will conduct the inspection within the scheduled window.

Appointments for PSL inspections are available Monday through Friday, except on EBMUD holidays.

Please schedule your inspection either online or at the EBMUD New Business Office at 375 11th Street, First Floor, Oakland. Inspections are confirmed when payment is made.

Disclaimer: EBMUD issues compliance certificates solely on the basis of the performance of the tested sewer lateral in a verification test performed in the presence of EBMUD personnel. The verification test is designed for the sole purpose of determining whether the tested portion of a sewer lateral is free from leaks at the time the test is performed. By issuing this certificate, EBMUD warrants only that the tested portion of the sewer lateral passed a verification test on the date indicated. EBMUD makes no warranty, representation, or guarantee as to the sewer lateral's existing or future condition or its compliance with the legal standards of any other jurisdiction, including building or construction standards without limitation. EBMUD expressly disclaims any and all warranties, both express and implied, as to the sewer lateral's condition or compliance with legal standards and shall bear no liability in connection therewith.
