If after a video inspection we determine you have a nonconforming sewer connection, we provide consulting services to help you find the easiest solution for installing a new sanitary sewer line, or disconnecting from a party line. This allows each homeowner their own individual conforming connection. We provide these consultations for:

  • Homeowners
  • Realtors
  • Property Management Companies
  • Contractors

We will also work with the city or county in order to obtain the best method of installation then provide you with an estimate as well as a DVD of the inspection.

Within the City of Portland party sewers or nonconforming sewers are common situations. The city code states that each homeowner must have their own private lateral on their property connecting to the city’s main line. If your sewer is located on someone else’s property, that’s called a nonconforming sewer connection, if your line is connected to the neighbors line, you have a party sewer line.

In some areas an easement or a temporary easement could have been granted, but making a quick phone call down to the City of Portland will help clarify the situation. We can help you with this process every step of the way.

Party Sewer Line


A party sewer line is when two or more private sewer lines join in a single pipe before connecting to the public sewer in the public right-of-way.
