Applications for plumbing and sewer connections

Series consists of plumbing and sewer connection applications pertaining to buildings that no longer exist in their original location, having been demolished, moved, or burned (applications pertaining to existing buildings are in the custody of Permits and Inspection).

There are six different kinds of records in this series, all of them used (and filed) together in administering plumbing and sewerage connection applications: Application to connect with sewer; Application to construct plumbing; Application to connect with public surface drains; Application to connect with public surface drains or septic tank; Application to connect with holding tank; and Application to connect house sewers temporarily to public surface water drains. Each application consists of a form and a basic plan of the structure (on linen). The plans show the location of the bathroom(s) and kitchen and indicate where the house plumbing connects to the main sewer. Some applications contain more detailed plans showing elevations, alterations, and additions, as well as correspondence.

The first application to connect to the sewer was made on 1 December 1892.

The design of the forms and the information collected changed over time. Sample data elements for several periods are provided below.
