The Sewer Connection Manual supplements Philadelphia Water Department Regulations, the Philadelphia Plumbing Code, the Property Maintenance Code, the Administrative Code, and other provisions of City Code. With the companion Sewer Connection Regulation, this Manual is intended to detail the rules and processes governing connections to the City’s public sewer system. It is also intended to improve the working relationship between plumbers, customers, and the City by clarifying what is expected of private plumbing work in the street. It can be downloaded below.
