Kensington PSL Compliance

Kensington PSL compliance (or private sewer lateral ordinance compliance) is required throughout the Bay Area. The ordinance shifts responsibility for private sewer lateral maintenance, repair, and replacement services from the city to the property owner. That’s right, you’re responsible for your own private sewer lateral upkeep. Fortunately, here at Streamline Plumbing, we offer professional Kensington PSL compliance inspections, repairs, and more.

What’s The Purpose Of The Kensington PSL Ordinance?

This ordinance is primarily in existence to help maintain the cleanliness of the area and the bay itself. Old sewer laterals leak wastewater into the ground and storm drain system. This seepage of raw sewage into the water supply is both hazardous to the health of Bay Area citizens as well as local wildlife. Keeping this water and land clean should be the top priority for city officials and area residents. A faulty sewer lateral can also allow rainwater to seep into the sewer system, which causes overflows and dangerous sewer backups.

Does The Kensington Private Sewer Lateral Ordinance Apply To You?

This Kensington private sewer lateral replacement program applies to anyone who is selling/being sold a property or anyone who is increasing/decreasing water service that requires a change in meter size. Obtaining the PSL certificate from EBMUD is also needed for anyone who does $100,000+ worth of renovations on their home or property.
