Property owners desiring sewer service for new construction, second units, additions, septic system conversion or other forms of development should contact the District to obtain specific instructions and guidelines for completing a connection.
The process is often facilitated by meeting with District staff in person to discuss your project early in the process. Call us at (805) 684-7214 to arrange a meeting or to discuss the process.
If your property is not already within the District’s legal service area boundary, you will be required to undertake annexation proceedings. This is a formal boundary change process administered by the Santa Barbara Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO). Please contact the District to obtain completed information and requirements for annexation. District staff will typically work with applicants to navigate this process.
