What does the inspection consist of?

In compliance with this ordinance, a Qualified Contractor must perform a closed-circuit TV inspection of the private sewer lateral, typically from the clean-out in the sidewalk down to the connection to the sewer main in the street. A Qualified Contractor is defined as a licensed plumbing contractor with a City of Morgan Hill business license and an active pipeline or lateral assessment certification from NASSCO. The Qualified Contactor will complete the Private Sewer Lateral Inspection Form that must be filed with the City. The Qualified Contractor will inform the property owner if the inspection passed or failed and if any repairs need to be made to the sewer lines.
