On August 4, 2017, the Philadelphia Water Department filed a proposed new regulation, Section 504.0, detailing requirements for sewer connections with the Department of Records. This section has now been approved and incorporated into Chapter 5. Click here to download the new regulations.

Section 504 is effective as of 9/5/17, and we will begin formal implementation of the program on October 1st. To supplement these Regulations, PWD created a Sewer Connection and Repair Manual.

All PWD regulations are available to view and download here.
